    How do you maintain Farlow?

    I'm guessing you just dump a fresh load of rocks at the top and watch 'em fall down into the ones that are allready there and call it done.

    Instead of adopting trails we already have for riding, is there any chance that PAS could actually get new trails built? I don't think anyone could play the sanitation card if the trail didn't pre-exist and we'd have more trails to ride.

    I think it would be great to create new trails. However if we don't maintain the ones we have they could be lost. Hiker groups maintained some of these trails in the past. It is good to get these trails under a MTBer group in my opinion. I would hope that some day more trails could be connected or created in the future. PAS does however need more dedicated individuals to help with trail maintenance, fund raising and advocacy. One can only hope all these things progress to get what we all want.

    When we have so many volunteers that there's not enough trail work to keep folks busy, the FS may think about new trail. Everybody needs to understand that the FS doesn't have the budget to maintain what they already have. It's pretty sad that they have to rely on volunteers, and worse that most people don't care enough to maintain it. And even with an army of volunteers ready to build new trail, the FS has to invest time, effort and (I assume) cost to prepare for new trail.

    And the complainers will find just as much fault with new trail as they do with maintaining current ones. It's why they get up in the morning.

    The Braken project is something the City of Brevard is working on with the USFS. PAS is not involved with this. Todd from Blue Ridge Adventures is highly active with this project as he is also with the PAS Pisgah trail crew. The Trail from my understanding on the USFS property 476b I think it is does not have to be created and is already there. The City trail is what is being created.

    With the upcoming Trail Evaluation and NFsNC Non-Motorized Trails Strategy there actually is a chance at getting new trails built if there is a need for them.

    On a plus side it is great to see the City of Brevard supporting cycling as much as they have. The Assult on the Carolinas was a great road event with bands and food at the end of the event held in the spring of this year. So to add this to the mix they are on a great track for the cycling community. Oh and their Greenway project is also great.
