5/20/16 Trail Clearing On Timber Mtn.

Postby Tawmass » Sat May 21, 2016 9:54 am

Met up with SteveR and RichardR at Lilly Prairie to help perform trail maintenance on one of the main trails called Boundary Trail. Steve would run the dozer, Richard would pull the Gravel Rascal and I would run the chainsaw trimming back brush.

The erosion from last winter had wreaked havoc on the trails due to trail design that did not incorporate ways to deal with the water. Throughout the day Steve added many rolling dips into the trail to help slow the water down and minimize the creation of rain ruts. Richard followed Steve's work with the gravel machine to help smooth things out. I cleared out countless pieces of pine and manzanita.

Throughout the day, a variety of riders came by giving a thumb's up or "You guys rock!", which was really great to hear!

The trail ended up pristine and will hopefully last throughout the hotter months and into the upcoming Ghost & Goblins Poker Run this fall.

You don't stop riding because you grow old, you grow old because you stop riding.
