Last week we put up temporary signage for the winter loop!
The winter loop is designed to channel users so that they quickly pack down a route after a snow-storm instead of scattering their efforts randomly over the trail network. It also assists the navigation of people who only ride our forest during the winter. This year’s loop is a bit longer and optionally connects to The Den so experienced riders can increase the technical challenge and enjoy that super fun trail.
Be aware that hazards exist on this trail and you ride it at your own risk. We make NO guarantees about safety of conditions or completion of signage! Currently the loop traverses an active logging area, signs might go missing and there is going to be ice.
Grubbing a trail into the ground is a comparatively easy task.
Compared to rock work that is.
Going by man-hours, the latter comprises the majority of work yet to be done on the new trail – That contrast is acute in this trail’s case because we’re committed to creating something Intermediate out of “expert” level terrain.
Our hope is Intermediate riders can get a taste of rock-crawling-flow (is that a thing?) when they ride this trail, but this makes our job a tough slog given the terrain, routing around low areas over rocky outcrops and of course Ze Bugs!!
If you see a build day posted, consider helping us reach our goal of completion!
