Work continues at the trail. I rode part of it last weekend and it didn’t seem too bad, just a few days of clearing would have it back in shape. The view is incredible. The whole railroad bed is now visible and there is some great micro terrain in that area that can be exploited. I rode about 20 miles up towards Bear Lake on the dirt roads. A super nice ride plus I found some new sections I hadn’t ridden before but I forgot the GPS so I’ll have to get it next time. Later I heard that Serpentinas was pretty messed up by the tractors but the portion I rode seemed fine. I saw two whippoorwills or whatever their cousins are called.
Today Candice and Jason and I did 6 hours each clearing June Bug and Porc Chop. The tractors were still working out there but it was up closer to Red Rock Rd. There was one short section of Porc Chop that was missing and it looked like a chunk of Serpentinas was gone but since they were driving around we chose to not explore. The old entrance looked pretty beat up also but I couldn’t really tell without getting out and looking. I will say that this whole trail building experience has been less than satisfying with the constant setbacks but I saw someone out riding and some fresh tracks so at least it’s getting some appreciation. I hope that when all the clearing is done that there are several years of calm and maybe some good enhancements allowed from the forestry department and maybe some donations from them as well.
