Last weekend (August 23) it took over 30 hours of volunteer labour to iron-out the kinks on Angry Ted. Originally we placed that trail as an upland bypass of the marshy trail just to the south, so of course the terrain would be rocky and unrelenting. Rocks are better than mud, right! 🙂
We hope there is a bit of something for everybody in these changes.
Thanks to our Trail Captain volunteers for continually giving back and to Clif Bar for sending us snacks, if you want to try one catch us at our next build. Here are the images our group found time to capture while working.
The flooding across the Britton tract access road is being looked into by Halton Region.
Last we checked you could cycle through the puddle, but no way you’re walking through with dry feet unless you’ve got rubber boots on. This feels like a throwback to the ol’ days before the water management went in – Sometimes the rainwater could surge to over waist/top-tube height.
Anyhow, the resolution may take a few weeks since the beaver that has caused the problem needs to be apprehended (live catch/release) and unplugging the blockage is tricky (there is now a lot of hydraulic pressure).
Until then please stay on trail, there is no easy, secret, dry way around the flooding waiting for you off in the bush.
