Thank you all for all the fun you gave US!

The new season is upon us - This is a general call to all trail captains (and those who wish to add a helping hand...

\Well itís that time of year, for those trail captains thank you in advance for taking the time to mark your sections, if you encounter any issues you need help with let me know. I do have posts, reflectors and signs in my barn if needed. We have been out thru out the summer fixing a couple issues with bridges that we lost during the spring rain.

The following is a list of projects and or inspections that need to be done, if one of the inspections are on your section of trail PLEASE take the time to evaluate the condition and let me know if work is needed and or all is ok so I can mark it off the list of things to do . the following list is not in any order of importance as they all are.
