    I rode baldy>Homestead>Strawberry Jack>Buck Gulch>Skipper>Gashouse>Redskin>CT>Shinglemill yesterday and the effects of the storm are noticeable, but not catastrophic. Compared with the damage some other OS trail systems to the north suffered, BC came out relatively unscathed.

    There is some small scale gullying in places that unless dealt with quickly will result in the gullies getting deeper and wider withpeople riding along the edge of the gullies and making the trails wider. Other places where the sediment has been deposited were very soft and sandy. It would take a lot of wood or stone check dams to slow water and catch sediment but I'm not sure how else you'd deal with the issue.

    Thanks-
