Not easily or officially yet. Eventually there will be but it will be a while. There is a gravel drive near the cell tower and the fence is lower there. I have been able to climb the fence there and lift my bike over. I normally just take Predmore to Kline and go in the main entrance. Besides, if you have ridden BM to Lake George why not ride the fast downhill to the Graham Lake access road and then back up Premore? Sometimes I will ride back up Lake George just to ride the downhill section again.

Trail took yesterdays rain real well. quite a few small puddles, but nothing like mud pit. only one greasy spot. on that right hander with the drain culvert that creates a bit of bump that's a usually greasy. That spot could use some TLC on the next trail day.

And remind me didn't a few of us spend the day trimming the growth only a couple weeks ago? could use another cut.

Oh and any chance of getting some wrong way signs for the trail. Especially at the paved path exit at the end. I almost got hit by some teenage campers bombing a climb.

Trail was very nice this morning with only a few small puddles, almost exclusively on the first half (before the paved path run). Does need another trim, especially just before the "*beep* rock".

Lloyd and I are planning on running our trimmers out there Tuesday am.
Not sure of the time yet, but post up if you want to help. We've now got a MMBA trimmer to use as well.

Looks like we're going to start trimming the trail at 9:45 or 10:00 this morning.
We'll be starting from the old kiosk and heading backwards this time. I don't expect to get the whole trail done today, but we'll try........

Lloyd and I got the area that we skipped 3 weeks ago trimmed.
We did like I mentioned in the previous post. We worked backwards from the old Kiosk all the way to the pavement. Basically, the second half.
Most of the trimming we did earlier didn't need much work. The lower vegitation growth is finally slowing down.
I suspect there's a few slappers in the first 2 miles of trail that could be trimmed. (On another day.......)

Oh boy, did it feel good to get back to Addison Oaks, after having ridden an elevation-less Lakeshore for the past week (getting ready for the Tree Farm).

Rode 2 laps and trail was in great shape today! Thanks to those that have been trimming the trail!
