Thanks for the cleanup. I think all but 1 or 2 of the big trees were there when I rode on 1/26, which is a good sign. I did not see horse tracks but did see some 4-wheeler tracks. Maybe some of the big trees should be left if it is an area that cannot be easily by-passed.
There is still a tree laying on the power lines at the parking lot. If you have a tall vehicle or roof rack, use caution when parking and leaving. Didn't ride the trail though, just teaching my son how to fish
I have been riding Keg for 8 years and never seen the trail in such awesome shape. Great ride today. There are abut 4 or 5 non-riders out there but easy to get over between 22.5 and the top of Boulder Creek. Go ride what I call the anti-FATS trail of the CSRA.

We (JP3, PF, and SY) cleared four downed trees near Boulder Creek. There may be one more downed tree somewhere in the middle of the trail and we saw fresh four-wheeler tracks near the back door/Keg Pointe subdivision. Otherwise, the trail is good to go for the Best Dam Ride next weekend.
Do you enjoy our trails?
If so, can you volunteer 5 hours for trail work in 2015 or, if you're too busy, donate $50 to SORBAcsra?
We have a lopping party set up for this Sunday at 9AM if you can spare some time, please sign up to help, we are helping to get the trails ready for the upcoming Wildwood Games (Columbia County event). We have 10 people signed up so far but need about double that so we can get into and out of the woods as quickly as possible, sign up here>> SORBAcsra for more details, check this out> sorbacsra.proboards.com/post/24925
Rode Keg and Mistletoe this weekend, both are in great shape. Water in most of the creek crossings, and lots of opportunities to hone your log hoping skills. A few non-riders, but all are easy enough to get over. I don't remember where the non-riders are....I'm sure Brian or Ted do, they pay closer attention to that stuff than I do.
AND if you really want to hone some mountain biking skills, Keg Creek and Mistletoe trails are the place to do it. If most of your riding is at FATS and Bartram (without the addition of our outer trails periodically) and you will experience a decline in your mountain biking skills (if you developed those skills at some point).
Great to hear the trails are in excellent condition, we still have some work to do on some of the others!
