New Monument Trail
We're holding one of the last trail build days of the year this Sunday on the new Monument Trail connecting above Cold Creek Trail to the Rim Trail. We're tying this in with a ride up and down checking out Cold Creek and Star Lake.
Free food to keep you fueled - doughnuts and coffee in the morning, lunch on the trail, and then post ride bbq with beer.
Meet up at the locked gate on High Meadow dirt road at 9am and we'll ride up from there. BBQ at end of the day in the same place.
From what I rode a month ago, it looks like this is gonna be a very cool trail with great views and provide another loop option or point to point exit to the already cool options we have already.

Nice riding T. That looks great. So many options at South Shore now. Good times.
For sure, the new Monument trail will open up a lot more options.. just like Star did last year. Monument probably won't be complete until mid next summer however.
Looks like we're going to have a decent turn out of people riding and building on Sunday. If you want to join us and need lunch, let me know, I'm going to hand out food down below at 9am and let every carry up their own sandwiches, sorry, my sherpa days are over. All tools will be up there already by the USFS. Then BBQ back down at the parking area around 4pm
