    We had a really successful workday. About a dozen volunteers assembled. We jumped in on the rutted flat sections near the start of the trail. We moved the 2200 lbs of crusher run gravel a wheelbarrow at a time, and spread it on the soft sections. We used a tiller to till this into the soil, and then tamped the final surface down. We need some rain now to settle it in further. Our hope is that this gravel mixed with the dirt will help stabilize the soil and prevent rutting this winter. We also abandoned and reclaimed about 200 ft of trail that was a real drainage problem. We used the tiller to break up the surface before scattering woods debris over the old trail so that nature can easily reclaim.

    Then we moved over to an unopened section of trail on Phase 2, that had been built thru a wet weather spring. Since last winter, it was obvious that this would never hold up during wet winter conditions. We had flagged a reroute during the winter, and we moved the trail up the hill. This was about 200 ft of trail.

    Meanwhile Darryl and Chris went to the gas pipeline and brought back rocks to use for armoring some crossing places. They installed some rocks in a troublesome crossing. The rest of the rocks were stored near the trailhead for later use.

    We were moving so fast, that we still had about an hour of the morning left, so we moved over and continued to push forward on the corridor work for Phase 2. We got about 500 ft cleared and raked.

    Thanks so much for all of those that attended and worked so hard. What a nice day to be out in the woods.

    Way to go Bob, you are a great trail building leader along with some of the other veterans. This trail was super fun to ride yesterday and now is in the best shape it has been since opening IMHO. Thanks for putting it together and we'll hope to be back on the 18th. I'd love to get that first mile or so of phase 2 open by Fall and it looks like it may be getting close.
