Anyone in for a Trail day next week please post up here. I was thinking Sat but whatever works for the group.

If you are out on the trails and doing some clean up work, which we encourage, please post up here so we can better coordinate our efforts.

I have started cleaning from my side of Pinnacle, at this point it is just debris removal. The following is a list of trails cleaned to date:

- Baptist Hill (not ready for riding, still ice, mud, and frost) on the lower section
- Baptist Bypass
- Snake Alley
- Upper Loop Ext from Summer to Baptist
- Couch
- Midway Traverse
- Brian's Trail
- Summer from the water towers to Whip & Spur
- Big Rock
- Barton Woods complete
- Hale Trail
- Eastside from the playground down

Basically everything from the Pinnacle Trail / Summit down on my side of Summer is ready for blowing.

I have cut a Bail Trail around Big Rock for those days the rock is too slippery to ride.

I cut a connector trail from the top of the Barton Woods trail over to the ski area and ski return trail and cleaned it all out for summer activities. Could use a good raking / leaf blowing.

I may go out for an easy ride tonight and throw debris off the trails below the towers (south bndy, forrest, foliage, ledgem north bndy, roots).

I think I caught at least 8 small branches in my rear tire/wheel yesterday. Mostly on pine link, grenvilles eastside, and whip'n spur.

I will be out this weekend to help some more.

PJ is refering to Eastside. I fixed the wet spot yesterday. It will be soft for a while yet but eventually will dry out and stay dry this time.

Brake Burner is now clean and ready to ride as well.

Well, it looks like I didn't completely fix the wet spot on Eastside. Got some ideas, will work it until it's right.

In the meantime I'm working the Salem's lot bog. I made a minor reroute through the wet area today. Hopefully this will be a little dryer and give a better linup on the rockwall crossing. Still needs hardening. I will get to that when I get the chance.
