Hey pcollinskume, thanks for your trail report and doing what maintenance that you can while you use the trail ! We truly appreciate that. I rode thru the park last Sunday on my commuter
bike and kinda explored parts of Lucky Dawg and the first part of the East loop and things were good there, but Buckshaver always dries out last. We've had trouble with dirt bikes over the years.
I will definitely take you up on your offer for help as it is always badly needed. Rich does a ton of good work out there and I would like to see the sections that you and he are refering to.
Due to the proximity of the trail to the river, this trail stays wetter than most, but usually is completly rideable from June -Nov. But, I agree that some more mud countermeasures are needed.
I have been working alot lately including weekends and haven't been out to the trail yet, but it needs a lot of love this year and some trail days would hopefully bring out some helpers.
The trail needs all new signage, some bridge repairs, mud reroutes and the pump track could use a good dig day or two. Keep checking this forum for trail dates in May. Thank you !
