    Lynn Woods Update 09.24.05

    We (Lynn Woods Maintenance Volunteers) were able to complete 100% of our fifth trail maintenance project. This trail work was completed (pictures will be posted) on a section of trail located near the Great Frog Boulder (Map intersection D4-1). This section has severely eroded over the past few years that made it difficult (and not fun) to climb up and/or ride down.

    All the volunteers worked hard today to complete the new Overlook Trail re-route. We have built two stone walkways providing proper water drainage and eliminate trail soft spots.

    This new sections includes some technical rock features such as kickers and rollers. During our build we had bikers climbing up and running down this trail. Everyone said it is awesome!

    I ask everyone to ride this new section so that the process of packing the soil naturally will occur. My team and I will monitor this section for next two months making any adjustment if required.

    TRAIL SIGNS and MARKERS for this section will be posted this upcoming week to ensure all riders in this area will know where the new trail section starts and ends.

    I want to extend my personal thanks to each individual (listed below) that helped complete this project. This was a huge project (200 feet of trail) and everyone worked there ASSES off! I look forward to see everyone again in future trail builds and/or maintenance projects.
