    All of them? I know yudicky and willowdale are getting some time put in for clean up. Harold parker too. Going to be walk with hand saw and rake for the next few weekends for me. I think at this point, sooo many trees down with lots of branches and junk on the trails, pedaling will be futile. Please post on the ground reports of what areas need help, what has been worked on and what needs chainsaw work. Thanks.

    The fells was messy yesterday, several trees down over the trails, quite a lot of erosion and some of the rock gardens have been completely changed up with the running water moving the mud, leaves and piles of pine needles. Actually made some of my usual trails more interesting than usual Except for the downed trees ofcourse.

    The MV boys have been working Russel Mill / Billerica SF hard; probably your best option.
    Topnotch trails too, if you've never been.

    Willowdale is still a mess think there is a 50 mile running event there this weekend? Bring your hand saw or a six pack for the hard working crews? The Nemba Chapter FB pages will have some intel.

    Willowdale has many trees down along the mtn bike loop but most are already chainsawed through. A couple already have well worn walk arounds. No real delay and the place looks different with all the deadfall.

    Wompatuck is in decent shape, still have the odd tree here and there, but given its size, there's still plenty of undisturbed riding
