Added another new reroute/loop today and started reclaiming the loop that was closed due to flooding back in the spring (will finish up tomorrow).

Matt, we will be working in the morning and probably riding a few laps in the afternoon if you want to join us.

Evan I have not been down there since the new trail additions . Do you still ride the trail the same way as before and these are loops that have been added or is this a new section :?:

Great finish for the last week of the year! Myself and all the volunteers that came out put in a total of 26 volunteer hours this week alone! Thanks to Bryant, Neal and his son who helped out today!

This morning Bryant and I rock armored a few low lying areas and we finished opening the old loop that had been closed all year. This afternoon I hiked/marked a section to make this previously closed section a part of the big loop (currently it's just and out and back loop), then Bryant, Neal and his son joined me in cutting in part of this new section of trail (plan on finished up with this on Monday)......more switchbacks!!

Dr. Rob, this section we opened is just and out and back loop (at the moment at least) but there are other new sections added that have been integrated into the big main loop where you have to ride them.

Trying to round up a group of volunteers to do some benchcutting as well as haul in some rock to the same spot. Please post up if you are interested and what times/dates you are available in the next few weeks. Thanks!

Evan, we have Pulaski tools (useful for benching) and McLeod tools (useful for raking out new trail) available. Let me know if you need them and we can work out getting them to you.
