I'm working on the trail system in Anthem. They have taken a BEATING from the monsoon rains this summer. The storm yesterday afternoon was one of the worst I've seen and pretty much washed out three hours of trailwork I did
I appreciate all of those that are helping out the trails in the Blue Diamond area, keep it up
I do what I can but CW needs a lot of serious work with real tools.
I think that the BLM should step in and spend some of my taxes.
Definitely needed. Rode Cottonwood Sunday morn and what used to be nice buff dirt singletrack is almost all rock now. I was surprised by how much sand has 'appeared". Just the trip from katies lot to Waterfall canyon involved quite a bit of change.
There are also huge sections where run-off has re-routed the trail a bit and created mini-ditches that constantly threaten to suck you into the gravel in the middle.
A rake, a shovel and some work could easily fix it.
PS. ran into a huge rattlesnake in the wash coming back from BD to Katie slot. Scared me half to death since by then it was easily 90+ and I've rarely seen them in the heat of the day.
