That’s right, Engineers have been busy building new single track coming just out of the parking lot at Redbird off trails 6 & 9.
They are working hard making new trails for bikes to follow.
They have been busy cutting down trees.
WARNING: For some odd reason the engineers thought it would be funny if they ended the trail at the bottom of the hills into the stripper pits. So beware!!!!!! These are really what you call a Beaver slide that they use to exit and enter the water.
Just ask Chris about this.
But it has recently come to the attention of the Staff Members here at the park, that these engineers are not state certified and cannot be building these trails until they attend the proper trail building classes that are required by the state.
So any trails that have been built by these engineers are not a legal trail. They are in the process of closing off these unmarked trails for your safety.
Really, on the lighter side of things now.
This rider was out riding Saturday and the downed tree forced him to the left of the trail. He saw the dirt trail turn down the hill and thought it was the trail. It was actually a cleaner trail and really looked like the trail continued that way. He got stopped just before going into the lake.
Rider was ok and was not hurt. He spent several hours out there trying to get the bike up the hill. Glad we were able to find him before it got dark on us.
Just wondering how people can be building trails and cut trees when several foundation people marked out new jeep trails 2 years ago and still haven't been able to open them up even though we been to the trail building class. I have always been told we can't cut trees unless its in january or febuary and then it still had to be approved.
beaver cut it down not man, maybe foundation needs to move the beavers over to the jeep trail area and they can cut them down for you lol!!! I was also thinking the same thing until I figured out it was the beavers cutting the trees
