June 6th Trails Update
Week # 6 of the MBT Trail Crew Season!
All aboard the Brown Pow Express! It wasn’t a bad week for riding bikes and be sure to get your tickets for later this week too. The crew was diggin’ on the weather and the new Hillside trail in Southern Valley. Along with the Forest Service trails crew, our crew had another week cutting, swamping, digging and designing. They also got out for a solid chunk of maintenance work and trail clearing. Here’s the breakdown of this past week on the trails:
- Tuesday The crew took Monday off and began the week over on the new Hillside Trail. Alec, Stacey and Eric swamped behind the Forest Service trails crew and fuels crew and dispersed the berm of organic formed by the machine. Chris joined the crew in the afternoon after a morning in the office.
- Wednesday Another beautiful day on Hillside. The crew continued swamping and dispersal of organics. Punched in about .25 miles of trail on Tiny Dancer.
- Thursday Great day on the Hillside trail with the crew and special guests. MBT ED Tony Ferlisi and a stellar volunteer joined for some finish work on the upper section of the trail. Lots of mileage here will take quite a bit of finish work. Keep an eye out for volunteer opportunities coming soon!
- Friday With a needed break from Hillside action, Chris and Alec cleared six trees on Pole Canyon to just below the ridgeline (snowed in) and worked to divert running water off the trail at the bottom. They also received a report of two down trees on Grove Cr. to Drake Thursday, one of which was cut, but cleared the large one on the Crest connection. Good to go!
- Thanks to those helping out with maintenance! Shout out to Nate Carey and Mike Barklow who cleared trees on their motos from South Fork Horseshoe to North Fork Canyon Creek, North Fork Canyon Creek to Carlton Cutoff, Carlton Cutoff Northbound from NF Canyon Creek to Relay Ridge and Graham Springs!
- Big thanks goes to Habitat for lending out some E-bikes on Friday for Pole Canyon and Grove/Drake maintenance! Also, a cheers goes to Ron Murray and Kurt Borich for maintenance reports.
After the Sunday/Monday moisture, make sure to give the trails at least 24 hours after the final rain/snow before riding them. It helps keep ruts from plaguing the trails all season long.
We want to thank everyone for their continued responsible trail use and those who are helping with early-season maintenance. Please remember to share trail reports or work of your own so that we can relay to the people!
