Saturday I took advantage of the cool weather and brought the dog out for some trail maintenance at UWF. I got there at around 9:00 and the parking lot was just about full. Lots of people gearing up for the 50 mile Epic Ride in November. It was good to see so many people out enjoying the weather. The schnauzer and I hiked out to the Gorge to finish the reroutes and then headed to the Chute to rework some areas the horses trampled. As we were headed out I saw more horses headed in. I just don’t understand why they choose to ride our trails when they have an equestrian center, trails on NWFWMD land and about 100 miles of trails in Blackwater that are maintained for them. I’m not a hater though. 4.5 hours
Sunday Barbara and I loaded up all the dogs and ventured to Blackwater to do some trail work there. We touched up the first mile or so, nothing real strenuous. We were pleasantly tired and the dogs were exhausted when we finished. 3.5 hours each.
