    Post Traumatic Flood Disorder

    Today a great group of mountain bikers spent the day rebuilding a flood damaged trail Marshall Mesa / Flatirons was my after-work ride. Most of it was closed until today!


    Where there once was a bridge, we spent the day building rock stairs and ramps. It is completely ride-able and hike-able.


    I also carved out some new corridor leading into it and added a little berm as well .

    Awesome repair job! Looks like the water raged through there big time.

    By all accounts and judging from the debris fields, the water was 6-8 feet (maybe more) above what you see in the pictures.

    Nice work--thank you.

    Mayhoffer-Singletree reopened today. Most of it is even smoother than before, but some ruts remain.

    Nice job and unfortunately I never hit those trails before the floods. Maybe make it out there next summer from Loveland.

    I got to ride these trails this evening in the dark for the first time since the floods. I am seriously impressed with the amount of trail work performed in a short time! Doudy Draw certainly has a bit more character now, it much rocker after the switchback of the descent. The stone work at the creek was great. I didn't attempt to ride it in the dark but with a bit of practice I can see that being doable. What was jaw dropping was the amount of devastation at the creek. The pictures don't do it justice. Standing at the creek I would estimate that the flood level was at least another 6 or so feet above my head from how it has carved out the bank on the other side. That is a lot of water for a creek that is usually a trickle.

    One thing that amazed me is how the trail managed to survive (for the most part) where the hill side collapsed at the Doudy switchbacks. I wasn't expected that.

    Anyway I wish I could have lent a hand in the work but I've been traveling abroad the last couple of weeks. Anyway you guys deserve a big
