    TM: Mahlon Dickerson, 6/28

    Hello!

    There will be TM session this coming Saturday, June 28, start time will be around 8:00. We will be meeting at the Tent Camping parking lot, and will be walking to the work site,

    We will be working with the Morris County Parks Commission (MCPC) to continue the "Wall" re-route. This is a chance to fortify our relationship at the park and help improve an already great network of trails.

    More details here:

    We will have tools, so wear a sturdy pair of shoes, and bring a snack, drink, and a good sense of humor. Please E-Mail me if you intend to come so we have adequate supplies: shaggz at mtbnj dot com

    Come on out and close down a fire-road and in the process build brand new singletrack. What's better'n that?

    Pay Dirt points in effect.

    Rode Mahlon for the first time in ages today, and the new trails are awesome. The new trail finishing down the rocks -- awesome. Great work guys and gals.

    The re-route is (I believe) on the yellow trail after the intersection with the highlands (teal) trail. There was a loose, rocky descent that was more or less straight down that has suffered a lot of erosion in recent years. The new route puts in switchbacks that are a whole lot more fun and are also better for the trail system.

    Nice - that was always a real sketchy downhill section. Makes sense that they were calling it "The Wall."

    I will probably hit it up this Sunday.

    I always thought it was kind of fun...although I never quite made it back up without stopping. Need to give it another go before it gets closed.
