I have been working on a short reroute through the wet area of Salems Lot. I finished building a rock bridge over the second branch of the seasonal stream today so the reroute is now ridable. Still some wet areas to be hardened but that is for another day.

great! A short pinelink bypass is available for riding and riding in. after you cross over the stone wall near the beginning heading toward bear trap take a hard left stay straight on the old logging road and have a fairly smooth run back onto pinelink.

Cool, I did a little snowshoeing in that area this winter, that was probably the smart way to go.

I found out what the maximum capacity of my rock moving rig is today. I got the large rock crossing the stream about a third of the way there and my rock mover collapsed, I straightened it out and got about a foot the second time. Had to roll the rock almost 100 yards to get it there. It may have broke my rig but it wasn't going to brake me!!!

Back to the drawing board on the rock mover.

yep I followed your ribbon down the road, instead of bearing right back to Eastside, bear left toward pinelink.


I am sure that rock will like its new home, it will have a few million years to heal its scratches.

Oh, for some reason I was thinking you went hard left back across the stone wall, there are some old logging trails over there too. That way works too. That's part of my ski return, also snowshoe that a lot.
