    Keep an eye out here and on the Evergreen calendar.

    We just finished a reroute this weekend during the trail school and it came out great.

    Great job, everyone. As we know, this stuff is a marathon, not a sprint.

    I lived on the eastside in the mid nineties and St. Ed's and Finn Hill was definitely one of my go-to afterwork ride spots. So glad to see folks continue their efforts here! Thank you!

    I noticed they mentioned dog owners in the announcement, but no mention of why. Did they get approval for an off-leash area there or something?

    Nice to see something on the north side getting some love, much easier for me to get to after work as well. Hoping to get out for some work parties soon.

    We took into consideration all the uses of the park during the planning sessions. Dog walkers are a large part of the user group and as you know it is currently illegal for dogs to be off leash in any KC or state park unless otherwise posted. There were a few that pushed to move toward off leash trails, but it was decided that if a sub committee wanted to tackle the issue that was up to them...it never happened. We did focus on how to make the trails safer and more fun for all groups but at this time dogs are still required to be on-leash (although it seems no one pays attention to that law).

    As Kasperilio mentioned, work parties are currently being planned and will be announced soon. We have a lot of great ideas and ebextreme is right, its not a sprint but a marathon...stay tuned for lots of work parties!
