    A day on the trail

    Another great Oregon day and another great Oregon piece of Singletrack. Cazloco, Mudflaps and I had a great ride, just shy of the snow level though it felt really warm and was dry all day long. We moved about 6 tree's/brush tangles off the trail, there is only one tree left.

    Almost forgot this picture, it got texted to me by the young women above as we were driving up to Oakridge, she was already on the trail enjoying the morning and the snow. It is from the Westfir Tie trail coming off of Alpine.

    Those tools you found where there from the two guys I worked with on that trail a couple of months ago. They are from a volenteer group that I can't remember the name of right now (Willamette National Forest Trail Volenteer's). If you had gone a little futher past those tools you could have road some more. Later Allen Great Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We road a ways past those tools, to where the trail crossed a huge ravine and there was no bridge. Whomever put in the upper section, or selected a route, needs to to go back to trail building school. It's really steep for bikes and hikers, if horses ever get up that high they will detroy this section of trail.

    We did ride past the tools, for about another 1/4 mile until the creek crossing that's not yet bridged, with almost a vertical drop into it. The trail still needs to be built to the future bridge location. That last 3/4 mile of trail is still very soft and in places one could question the design.

    Yeah, I had suggested that the newer section of the NF be used in next years CreamPuff race but was laughed at as if the "hardest mtb race" should/could be made harder. I'd have to agree that the routing choice(s) of the trail were not very wise as we rode it out but it was pretty fun on the way back. HORSES WILL DESTROY THIS SECTION OF TRAIL!!! (as will motorcycles) (and really so will hikers and mtbers) It will be interesting to see what the rain runoff will do to some of these steep sections.

    But other than my trail routing critique, the ride was great, as was the beer. Thanks fellers.
