I can probably (prolly) get out Saturday and do some trail clearing/chain saw work. Before the storm I was planning to get on Wine Creek. I'm not sure that's where it's mostly needed now. Anyone else planning to do anything?
Jon T. is putting together a small work party to clear trees that are down on Keg Creek (to try to get it cleared before the Best Dam Ride) report is that 21 trees are down but most are fairly close to the trailhead. Can you lend a hand there? We have heard that several riders planned to do the long mountain ride in conjunction with Best Dam Ride so we'd like to get it cleared.
We need help this Saturday at Keg. 21 trees down total; most trees (I think 15) are down around boulder creek, about 2 miles ccw from the parking lot. Easier to walk in from the neighborhood cul-de-sac (left just after the parking area, I will have double-orange flagging tape to the trail, then turn right on the trail). JP and I will start about 7:30am, but come when you can. You do not need to be USFS certified to run a saw on Keg. my cell is 706-726-1501 I will try to get the 4 trees at Wildwood Friday evening and then post latest info here Friday night. Can anyone help me then?
Turn left on Keg Pointe Road, about 1/4 mile past the parking area; go straight back to the cul-de-sac. There is a very obvious 4-wheeler track coming out of the woods; follow that track straight down the hill. If you hit the lake, back up 15 feet and get on the trail. It took me 5 minutes to walk uphill. My flagging tape is pink, not orange. With the rain forecast, I will head out there after the rain tomorrow if it is raining in the morning. Otherwise, I will presume it has missed us and head out there early am.
Keg should be cleared. Lowell D, Jimmy C, David K, JP, and I cut the trees from the parking area ccw to the top of the hill above the flat rock crossing. Tom Z came in with wheelbarrow and saw but we beat him to all the fun so he went to Wine. The Drawdys and the Lamberts were riding cw to get the rest of the trees, but I have not talked to them yet. Then JP, David K, Matthew K, and I got the trees on Big Rock and Tower. We saw several groups from Florida and hopefully talked some of them into the DAM ride. David K and I cut the trees in Wildwood and on the Lake Springs loop Friday evening. Thanks to everyone for all the hard work today. Impressive amount of saw work has been done in the CSRA in the last week or so.
