Day 2 started off a little cold and snow covered but ended up being a very comfortable day of digging. Only 2 people showed up today but we still managed to make pretty good progress. Most of the day was spent building up this section with a small rock retaining wall to help bench this slight right handed turn at the bottom of what will end up as a pretty fast flowing section.
Can't really see the rock wall...........sorry!
At the top this turn there was VERY short section that required no benching, just raked the leaves.

 Now this is the view for next week.
 I know this picture looks great and everyone will have a hard time waiting till next Sunday to dig in but with the Holidays hear it will pass before you know it and we will all be able to have the fun we deserve. Hope to see you Sunday at 10am. 
Now on to another topic that came up today. While we were in the park we noticed the below picture posted on several of the trees in the areas we were working........Looks like the five-0 are after someone!!!!

Total Trail Distance

7.5 hours

This past Sunday we spent the first trail work day for the 2013 season working on the Wildcat extension that will bring the trail all the way down to the park museum/train.

Being the first day things went a little slow as we were not use to the digging that is involved. After we got swinging things picked up and turned out pretty good.

We plan on working this coming weekend, 10am.............hope to see you there.

Does anyone remember this blog???

Well I guess I have really been neglecting this blog for quite some time now but as you all know it is Winter and that means............Trail Building Season.

Plans for this Winter are to continue where we left off last year on the Wildcat trail. Starting our work at the second shelter on the right fork of the park and bringing the trail down to the museum/train area.

We scouted this area last year and we hope it will be achievable by Spring.

This Sunday, the 16th at 10am will be our first day of work. We are getting a little later start than usual and we will need all the help we can get to accomplish our goal. If you're free and can join us please do!!

Be on the lookout next week for a post with all the usual details including pictures of our work.
