I moved the Lead in berm yesterday over about 4 feet, that plus new dirt that has been placed recently, plus rain equals soft dirt so beware.

I will also be out there this morning from about 10:30 on finishing up the berm project. The remaining work includes excavating and hauling dirt to cover the new rocks on the big berm and possible more dirt on the lead in berm.

I could use some help today so come if you can and bring a shovel.

I think the big berm is FINALLY finished!!! Finished putting dirt on it today. Beware of soft dirt if we get a lot of rain.

A little more work to do on the lead in berm to add a little dirt and smooth things out a bit but it is very ride able.

Couldn't agree more! Just when you thought that the trail couldn't get any better...Ryan you have outdone yourself this time.

BTW - my son gives it two big thumbs up, even though he tried his best to launch off the top yesterday!

If a little kid just learning to ride off road alomost went over the top, the thing must not be tall enough yet.

Ryan...

I rode the berm for the first time last night... It's hard to believe that the eastside extension has only been around for a few years; it rides as good as any trail I've ever seen. I really like the other tweaks you've put in to support the berm, the whole thing is just so well thought out!

CONGRATULATIONS! You are a trail-making genius.

It needs to be said that some where in the ballpark of 50 different people contributed to the latest Berm Project plus the town contributed and delivered to the work site some great base material. PJ was instrumental in providing the right number of volunteers at the right time, and in the initial planning of the latest Eastside trail extension to begin with. This was a true community project. Without the efforts of the many, projects like this would not be possible.

p.s. Things were a little soft yesterday afternoon when I ran it, but in the next 2 days it will become rock hard.

I ran the six course this morning and it seemed pretty solid.
