Due to the positively spring like weather HAFTA has been tricked into emerging from hibernation to reinstall that boardwalk over the flooded area near I Will Allow It. The giant puddle hasn’t thawed yet so the boardwalk will settle a bit, but it will prevent you from getting a soaker. Friends of the AF, please enjoy and remember if you collect mud on your wheels or heels then turn around so you don’t do permanent damage to the trails.
Hey AF friends the low area between Bat Boxes and I Will Allow It is now impassable due to temporary flooding. Late November 2016 we had to remove the existing boardwalk in order that widening of the double-track for the upcoming logging could take place. Unfortunately did not get an opportunity to replace it before the snow started flying.
We’ve had a few requests to create a default fat bike “route” to channel people’s efforts to pack down trail so we can get a rideable loop quickly set after a storm. A few other trail groups have such a plan and we think it’s a sound idea. So here is the new post-snowstorm loop, it is 7km long, starts from the Mohawk/Currie tract lot and incorporates a lot of the great trails. This is a short experiment, but hopefully it removes some people’s hesitancy about getting lost!
The flagging breaks down like this:
Loop 1 – One marker per tree – Red shade on map
Loop 2 – Two markers per tree. – Green shade on map
Main route – Three markers per tree. – Orange shade on map
Only the intersections are marked. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
