Various projects for the day include: 1.) chainsaw work to remove large fallen oak tree in order to reopen old short section of trail ( has sweet berm), rake out and close the go around line. 2.) Reclose trail ( leading to Dan's trail), which has recently seen high usage, at both ends. 3.) Clean up / close down multiple braids and define actual line on the part of Dan's trail on the small climb ( pine needles area). This trail has been completely blown out due to MX usage and lazy mtbers

There will be a ride after the trail work's done.
