Here are some pictures of the recent work over the weekend. We are really making some progress towards having a rideable loop. We have started on two bridges that needed to built before it can be ridden because they spanned very rocky unrideable sections of trail. Both are nearly completed. The one by the entrance just needs a few more rungs, and it will be good to go. This bridges has a cool "dirt topped" bridge that was made by building a box frame, filling it with rocks, and then topping it with dirt to finish it off. The other bridge is at the opposite end of the trail, and spans a small rocky ravine. All it needs is the rungs put on it. It will have some challenge to it due to the exposure on the right side. A big thanks to Doug and Tony for helping out on their day off, and to Brock and Sean for helping on Sunday.
Stay tuned for a big workday soon.

We have begun working on the features at the entrance to the trail. This is a bridge that you ride up to get to the trail that takes you to the drop zone. It incorporates some of the rocks we have all over out there.

Workday this sunday from 3-6. We will working on a new feature near the entrance so we can connect the entrance with the drop zone. We'll be setting posts for a new bridge...and that means breaking rocks again. The good news is that this one isnt nearly as long or as extensive as the drop zone bridges. We also need to clean up the trail between the features. This involves some destaubing and a small bench cut section.
Bring gloves, mccleaod, pulaskis.

This section is finally done. It is NOT open to the public just yet though. We still have to get approval from the land manager before it can be officially opened. Basically what this is is an elevated ladder bridge going into a burm that splits into two seperate lines after the burm. One goes to a 5' drop to a transition, and the other goes to a 1-4' drop to a transition. Both lines have a down ladder so they can be rolled as well. The two drops lead into a table jump over a creek.
