    We are on for the next installment of trail building at Cameron for Thursday, Dec 15 at 1:00. You can meet us at the gate on Adeline Drive at 1:00 to get your vehicle in or walk thru from the power line off Park Lake.

    Trail entrance is right above the ravine on the powerline. Follow it past the concrete culvert pipes and down the hill.

    You can now ride some of the new trail starting at the second power pole after the top of lean-to. Turn right on to the old trail(across from the dirt road) and the new trail is on the left right after the stairs(old porch). Follow it around until it meets up with the end of the old trail and go left down the hill. The trail is not well defined through the clearing by the powerlines at the other end, though.

    Still dry

    Reports of kids throwing rocks at riders from the top of Lover's Leap (rock slide area of river trail). Could be driving a white late 70's to early 80's white four door Ford(chevy???).

    A connector was put in Tuesday from the new trail(at the top of the climb from Lean to) to near the top of Lean-to.

    Today we started working on a trail that will start where the conector trail intersects lean-to and will eventual end up at the top of Buzzard. There are plans to maybe loop the trail back around to Lean-to where the old second entrance is on Lean-to.

    Monday

    Dry -- the rain this morning didn't even touch the trails.




    Be careful out there. Some idiot put a peice of bamboo across the top of arroyo yesterday.

    We did more work on the trail off the top of Lean-to. It is rideable, but not finished -- watch out for little stumps and other obstacles.

    If you are riding up the ledgy part of Lean-to from mix master go past the two old entrances to Lean-to, the trail will be to the left about halfway up the last little hill. At the top of the longish uphill after you go in between two oak trees if you continue straight about 30 feet, you'll hit the old road. A right on the road will take you back to the powerline; left goes to the witch's house. The trail continues for a while after the two trees, but it is an out and back.

    It is nearly complete. We lack about 40 yards and some cleanup of little stuff. It ends around the top of the first(old) lean-to drop in. It is rideable from the witch's road(watch for little stumps and stuff) , but you will have to hike the last little bit to get back to lean-to.

    Alvis finished it up yesterday. The climb back up to lean-to from the Whoop-Dee-Doo is kind of rough with the loose dirt but shouldn't be bad at all once it is packed in. Rumor has it that the new trail might make this years race course -- up the ledgy part of Lean-to and onto the new trail at the four-way intersection.

    The uphill entrance is hard to see -- look for a green ribbon.

    No. I would have to say the same thing for tomorrow too esp the new trails.


    It usually takes two or three day in the winter for the trails to be rideable after a heavy rain. This winter has been a bit strange with the unusually dry conditions, but it looks like we are getting into a wet pattern.

    And don't forget about the DGRs* that make riding the trails like a pinball machine.

    Yeah, i figured.
    A group of us went out yesterday, before the rain, and saw that new trail system. Looks good!

    Trails are in great shape. The rain washed a lot of the leaves off.

    I was surprised how good of shape the new trail(Weber Run) is in. No mud at all.

    Watch out for fallen branches and trees. I trimmed some off on one on California(around Arroyo) that almost took my head off, but the rest could still fall into the trail.

    We started work on Slinky. It comes off of Weber Run at the bottom of the whoop de doo and crosses the creek then climbs out onto a plateau and around up through a cedar break. It is rideable for the most part. Bunch of little plants that we need to cut back, and you'll have to find your way through the old trails at the top to get over to Buzzard -- if you run into a dirt road, you're going the wrong way.

    Trails were good for the most part. Bottom of California in the bamboo, Root Canal and Arroyo were a bit muddy. I imagine the other end of California will be muddy along with Highlander. The new trails looked greasy, but are rideable -- just exercise caution and don't skid or blowout the corners on them.

    Trails were actually very nice today. I don't think the rain really got to them. Only a few slippery spots.

    We put in the top part of Vortex(lil colorado) today. Access the top of Vortex by coming in at the top of Buzzard, but go straight at the first corner onto Slinky. Look for a turn about 50 yards on the right. Be very careful with traffic dropping in at the old starts of lil colorado. We will be closing that entrance in the near future.

    Slinky is a loop if you want to stay on top -- it isn't all groomed, but you can follow the ribbons around for the most part. Starts right after the road crossing(Powerline/Kite) and ends at the first turn on Buzzard.

    Torque'r is a trail that connects Weber Run with Slinky. Takes off at the bottom of the dip on Weber Run, crosses the creek and climbs up to the midpoint of Slinky.

    We also straightened out parts of Rhino(soon to be renamed Hale Bop). It should flow much better.

    I was hoping somebody else would chime in, but I think I have heard it is right around a mile.
