    What's up in Redding?

    I was distressed to think about the destruction in redding, Wiskey town, and vicinity. Not the least was the damage to trails that so many in Redding labored to build for so many years. Now that the fire is gone, what do the trails look like?

    had a friend ride Swasey yesterday, all black but great sight lines. Here is a link to a recent(ish) map. Some sections of the river trail system will be closed as BLM replaces culverts.

    Beside some culvert replacements and a couple bridges to repair the trails are pretty much the same as they were before. Its the foliage that has changed, obviously. This is a huge deal for multiple reasons. Whiskeytown is foreseeing major changes in the landscape for the next 5 years due to erosion and mudslides, I doubt we will see much of that on the trails closer to town as the geology is significantly different. The other major issue is that without any tree canopy its hotter than hell and our trails are going to be even that more dusty in the summer. Winter time should be great and as mentioned above, there are lots of cool views that weren't there before.
