    A little late on the update, but the first work party last week went well. We cleared a ton of trail and making good progress. Doesnt look like we are going to get a work party in this week because we are trying to get materials together to build the first bridge before we continue building down below.

    Stay tuned, we will be ramping back up after 4th of July weekend!

    Another work party has been posted for tomorrow night (7/16).

    Evergreen MTB Calendar

    Things are coming along really well. 90% of the trail has been cleared of organics and the top few corners have been rough shaped. Unfortunately the dry weather has us working with moon dust. We do have a rain barrel set up on site that we intend to fill with another rain barrel loaded in a truck. Although its not ideal, its what we have to work with.

    Working swing shift sure makes it tough to get out there to help during the week. I am looking forward to getting back out there to check it out soon. Now, if you ever have a work party on a Sunday......

    Its been a while since we've had a work party, but that doesn't mean we are not working. Not a sure thing yet and I will post it here, but I would like to have another work party next week. In the meantime, enjoy a few pictures of the recent updates.

    Here we go. I just posted another work party for this coming Wednesday, August 13th.

    Evergreen MTB Calendar

    sorry SlimL, weekends are tough during the summer but rest assured that we will have a few weekend work parties to get this trail buffed out.

    I look forward to seeing everyone that can make it!

    That's OK my friends just as long as you don't hold it against me when I come out to ride. I will make it up to you all by doing some work on Towers of Power. Then it will be clear to ride if you ever make it down this way.

    Thought I would post a quick update.

    There have been a few complaints surrounding phase II but these were addressed at the Friends of St Eds meeting last night with Ranger Mo present. Not only is Mo 100% behind us (as he has been all along) the Friends of group is elated with the concept and progress. The complainers are known entities and have zero impact on our goal (however, please be respectful to ALL users...dont know why i felt compelled to write that since everyone here is anyway).

    The hot and sunny weather has finally given way to the occasional rain and for those of you who have been on the trail you know what a blessing this is. It has settled very nicely and is riding pretty well now. There are still a lot of places that are well protected from the rains and have yet to pack out, but we will address those areas.

    There is still a lot of work to do on Phase II and I will be posting a work party soon. Stay tuned and hope to see quite a few of you out there!

    TREE DOWN. I figure this is the best place to post this. FYI. Riding St. Ed's last night and stopped by about a 7-10" thick tree over a trail. I do not have a saw for this and it's in the park.

    It's about 1/2 down the trail that is a nice downhill heading towards the ravine before the trail splits and you can go up to either side of the ravine. Tree really blends into the trail in twilight. The ravine is the one close to the road right after crossing the street at the top of the hill with the red light.

    Got it pin-pointed and reported to Ranger Mo. Also told him about it last evening and he said he'd get to it asap.

    Thank you to bavgumbo and TFitz for getting that taken care of!

    Possible short notice work party this weekend (Sat 10/18 or Sun 10/19). Dont have the details yet but if you are interested stay tuned here as well as EMBA calendar. Once I get it worked out I will post it up. Basically we want to take advantage of this wetter weather and get a few more of the turns dialed in.

    Who is up to fling some dirt this coming Sunday (11/16) after the Hawks game, say 1:00 pm?

    The rains have finally hit and things have settled in very nicely. We still have a ton of work to do to finish this up, but we can certainly put a good size dent in it this weekend. A couple of us are planning to do some work no matter what, but it would be awesome to see a good turn out.

    I will share the link to the the Evergreen calendar here once I have the work party details posted.

    Aw Man, I can't make it either. This is the Model Train Show at the Puyallup and I take my nephews every year. Great place to buy Christmas presents for them which is trickier now that they are getting older. Sorry Man. Next time. Slim

    WARNING! I inadvertently left a pile of retrieved pin flags just above the log crib. They're off to the right as you approach the crib and I think they're out of the way but take care.

    Edit/update: heading over now to get them picked up. Back to your regularly scheduled programing.

    you boys sure know how to make hard work seem easy. tons of fun just became that much more fun! good job and thanks for you help.

    on another note, we opened up the entrance to the trail as well as armored a couple of the (rain event) stream crossings. this trail is really shaping up to be a sweet! thanks again to all of those who helped out, i look forward to riding it soon!

    Thanks everyone!
