We got shut down from trail building early this year. We had significant snow cover before Thanksgiving. Some years we have been able to work through to Christmas [or after]. In someways it isn't a big deal.. [well actually in all ways it isn't a Big Deal] for I am "forced" to go back to working on some house projects, but I do miss it. We were on a roll…. making great progress. We also had a bit of other work in the "pipeline". The recent additions were awesome.. and I was looking forward to more of it.
Looking at the photo's on our FB page doesn't help. I was going through stuff.. kind of reviewing what we had done. We did not do much in the middle of the summer this year, and this springs work was harder to discern, but this fall. It looks like we made 15 new trails. That seems huge. Some of them were only a few hundred long, but they were great additions and add fun and flow, and good connections from one trail to another. Some like the recent trail through the pines are 1/2 mile long. Some of these trails will need some more earth work, but all are quite rideable.
I do know we did a lot of work on existing trails.. a little "polish" here and there. We also did a lot of work on the existing dual track, Ditching and installing culverts etc.
It is more painful for me to walk in the snow now… but we might try to make it out to do a little work on some new trails. We have some stuff flagged, and if the flags aren't too buried, so that we can follow the proposed route, we can get a little head start for spring.
