The workday at Frances Slocum State Park this past Sunday turned out to be a "GREAT" Success.
We(NEPMTBA) would like to thank Park Ranger Kris for helping us with the large trees that were hindering trail access due to the past windstorm. He spent the day with us removing trees and giving us incite in the proper care of the trails in the park.
Scott and Laura, and Late Dan from the Hubbard Bicycle club and Chuck form Main Bike World helped with the hand raking and removing brush from the trails. All 5 miles of trails were hand raked! It is now Perfect Single Track! Like riding on Carpet!
Steve Miller attended also. This was his first visit to Frances Slocum on a recommendation from his friend John Graboski from Hubbard Bicycle Club. He was a great help! We were all glad to meet you Steve!
Jeff and Brian From the "Mountain Top" crew worked on rebuilding the stone bridge on BLT(Boulders, Logs and Trees) trail. The bridge is now perfectly smooth. Like riding concrete. The work they did must be seen. It is truly a "WORK of ART" It will now be know as Jeff & Brians bridge!
We (NEPMTBA)(Chris Stine, Lee Curry and Kevin Czekalski) would like to thank each and everyone for dedicating your time and help to make the trails at Frances Slocum State Park a "GREAT" success! You made it happen!
The workday was followed by a great ride. The 2 favorite trails were: Happy Pants and BLT. We have a renaming of 1K trail. On the recommendation of Chuck. He renamed it Susquehanna River Devil trail.(SRD) You have to ask Chuck for the explaination! There is a story... of course that goes along with the name... and only Chuck can tell it like he does..Only he can sum it up!.........laughing!
