When I rode, I didn't see pauly but assumed that he wasn't done yet...probably because it was raining that day.
My complaint again is about:
1. the new bridge....not necessary...there could have easily been a reroute to cut out the exposed roots, put dirt down, or leave it. Putting concrete, bridge, gravel...overboard and unnecessary.
2. dirt on the logs after the big rock....placed there to make things easier? there was nothing wrong with the way they were.
3. gravel being placed everywhere....I understand about sustainability... we should not be using this kind of "gravel" to fix erosion.
4. cutting out all of the smaller trees after the airplane field to make the trail wider. Trails should be made without cutting down trees.
Things I liked:
trenches along trails for drainage.
rocks along trail to keep riders on designated areas...like the last climb in the newer section.

He said it was fine.
He was very clean.
