Thanks to all the volunteers that came out tonight! You made quick work of removing over 20 downed trees and even cleaned up 10 at Luton! Pizza an PBR hit the spot thanks to GR Bike Co. Trails are mostly dry with the exception of Sawtooth. The trail is officially open!

Merrell is in prime shape right now.

Did two laps yesterday and the trail is in great shape. My first ride there and it was an absolute blast. Glad it was recommended in my other thread I started yesterday. I wish I would have tried it earlier in my work stint out here which is coming to an end soon. Hopefully I can hit it on a Red day as the downhill on Phaser would be so much fun! And I saw some people commenting that Sawtooth is better on a Yellow day, I sure felt I was climbing the whole time, but IDK. Was still fun!

MiSCA will be holding a race on the trails Oct 6th. I would expect that a lot of scholastic MTB teams will be visiting the trail in preparation for the race. Please be courteous if passing or being passed.
