There are a half-dozen or so trees down on the southern boat launch to boat launch section and a few in areas throughout the park. Some could be moved with a few sets of hands, but a few will need a saw. I won't have time until the holidays...

There's a new bridge--constructed from pallets--on the powerline connector from Eddy Lake Road--not legal, but serviceable.

Josh,
Not surprising based on all that is down in Holdridge. Can a saw be used if hands cannot be gathered together? Unofficial of course. Might have opportunity during this weekend.

Quick spin around today and the trail seems to be in perfect shape. The interior, at least. I didn't hit the spur starting at the south boat launch, but judging by the lack of muck in the normal wet spots on a short interior loop, I'm cautiously optimistic that it'll be passable.

Chris,
Now you can come over to Holdridge. The West is dry, with the usual wet sections only soft. Trail was completely cleared including the Lake loop as of yesterday. Thanks to four crews of chainsaws.

Hit the trail from the south boat launch and it's pretty dry except the normal bog at the bottom of the hill and the area before the 1st creek crossing and 20 feet of mud after the 2nd creek crossing. Other than those few spots, it's in great shape.

Oh, and about a dozen trees crossing the trail requiring dismount. Forgot to mention those. :oops:

Anyone free to meet at Seven Lakes for a little work this weekend?

I'm thinking an early morning session (7ish) would be about right.

Edit: pm me if you might be in.

Everything is cut. The south boat launch trail has the usual muddy creek spots.

Lots of standing water yesterday because of the recent rains, but nothing too mucky except the normal few areas.

Thanks for clearing the trees, Josh!

Rode a few miles of Seven Lakes yesterday just to see what it was all about before heading down the road to Holdridge. Trail was in reasonably good shape, but I had a difficult time staying on the correct trail due to my lack of knowledge. Definitely a lot of potential there. Really enjoyed riding the high line around the South end of Sand Lake (near campground) and finding an overgrown trail that allowed me to ride out to Fish Lake Rd. and on to Holdridge.
