    There is no good timing for injuries. Hope you heal quickly and are back in the saddle soon. Thanks for all your effort to mobilize this army.

    It really was an awesome day of both building and riding. I lost that stick fight, and I'm not too fond of cheek piercings. Glad you guys got a laugh out of it...Your comment on where the stick should have gone made me laugh...after the ride. Special thanks to Kerry and everyone for making this happen. We enjoyed the heck out of what was built on Sunday.

    Good job Steve and Company!!! It's nice to finally see the plan developing out there!!!

    There are so many opportunities to develop sustainable, fun AND challenging trails in the area, and I'm happy to see that the USFS is supporting this effort!!!

    Much thanks to you Kerry!!!

    Too many high fives and thumbs up, keep the stoke down and they will recover.

    The climb up is challenging. After the berm section there are lots of pedal grabbing rocks no real line to pick but its fun. The rocks that were filled to make the climb are a fun challenge. I tried and faild then chose the go around line

    the down hill one way section is GTG no real work needs to be done onit. The flat landings arnt as bad as theylook. Although adding transitions would make it faster and more inviting to new users. There's plenty of room for advanced stuff later on.

    Personally i wouldn't mind adding transitions to the first drop and the roll over just to keep it a solid blue line...

    What he said.

    I'll add that the first rock feature is a fun climb and an easy decent. The section we built is over pretty quick though. Really looking forward to another couple build days to get more trail laid out.

    Great feedback. I want to make sure each line reflects the difficulty accurately (as best we can) so folks aren't surprised when they ride. If we can build in modifications to make them work better we should. There will be way more difficult stuff later but the first line people come to shouldn't be the hardest.

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    I think it is from having them stuck in your pockets most of the day...

    Rode it yesterday. Climbed it three times, once skidding my rear wheel on the boulder climb and almost falling back - just need some momentum! I thought the trail seemed to match Three Bottles well but agree the addition of some transitions on the blue line would lend itself more toward it intended rating. It is a pretty short section but I can say its a preferable climb to the other "old" way.

    Sounds like something my grandpa would say while he stood around with his thumbs in his pockets.

    Just a reminder that this Sat and Sun. April 12th and 13th are the next Three Bottles Advanced Trail build days. With another great turnout we can get a lot more trail and fun features put in. The really good stuff is yet to be built. Kerry went out Friday and added some new signage and says he is ready for us Sat and Sun. Meet at the Mars Ct- David Canyon PL at 9:00am. Show your support. Hope to see everyone this weekend!

    So it looks like to get to the Mars Court PL by truck I turn right onto Raven Road from 337 and drive about 1 mile. Is that correct? I've only been to that PL on my bike before...never by motorized vehicle.

    Planning to be there Saturday.

    Thanks,

    Pretty much right on. When you turn on Raven and go up the hill you will come to a park. Keep straight there and and then another 1/2 mile to Mars Ct on your right at the bottom of a short hill. See ya Sat.

    The first weekend Kerry opened up the gate and allowed 4x4 vehicles to drive in. If you don't have a 4x4 there were plenty of vehicles with open seats.
