Trail was in very good shape Thursday night (1/12). Only tree that needs cutting is near the 4 mile post. Thanks to Banks and John P for cutting trees last weekend. We rode the loop to ensure the back door and FS roads were clear, which they are.
Trail in good shape today. I can tell there has been a fair amount of traffic. Non riders at 1.1, 3.5, and 3.9 miles. Some areas look like a roto-tiller has been through, I presume damage is from wild hogs.
We got out on Modoc with ranger dog (Morry) today and did some cutting. Based on our ride last Sunday, we knew there were non-riders around a mile in from each end so we did short hikes on each end to take care of them. Hoping nothing came down in the middle during the week! Ran into Mark Hanna while he was enjoying a glorious day on a solo epic ride. He needs a bell because he scared me half to death. ;o)
