Beware I did a little dirt moving on Salem's Lot yesterday so you could encounter a little soft dirt but for the most part the berms were untouched and should still be pretty solid.

- improved entrance to Coit South from Salem's Lot
- started improving entrance to Salem's Lot from Coit South
- removed some off camber between the entrances on Coit South
- added extra dirt to first switchback to make it smoother
- smoothed out off camber section between 2nd & 3rd switchbacks
- added rocks at the base of steep side of the rockwall crossing at the bottom of the switchbacks
- blocked off old section of trail through the wet area

I also cut out that low horizontal tree in the middle of Summer St.

Started working on cutting in (aka couching) the off camber parts of Coit South today. This will likely be a long process but I'm starting at the Salem's lot end and will work my way up the hill.

If I do it right it won't be any less technical or difficult just easier on the legs for walkers and runners as I take out as much of the off camber to the trail as I can without compromising the ride.

Good to know LewT, could be useful some time. Most of the trails are single track and on the side of a mountain but for moving tools closer and water for the races, could be handy.

I'm sure PJ could come up with a 1001 uses. :D
