Trail Coordinator comments regarding braking bumps: there are some locations around the trail where trail design and trail maintenance affect braking bumps. The stretches before the rock garden developing braking bumps unless annually reoccuring maintenance provides relief. Over time, the trail troughs out in the middle, and then rain water travels down the center of the trail, accelerating the erosion and brake bump development. Two years ago we sent a trail crew to that location to knock the downhill side of the trough back down the slope, so that the camber of the trail would let water drain down the slope, not the trail. This year, we concentrated on drainage improvements on the trail day from mile 4 to 6, so the front side of the trail system did not get its required annual repair.
Nice picture, incidently, of the rock garden. The rock garden is at roughly mile 2.9ish. Trail was free of obstructions as of Thursday PM. There were a couple of wet spots.
