I want to say thanks for all the work that' been done on this trail. I live near here and I've always wanted an off road option along Hines. There is lots of potential and/or old trail to reestablish. Just east of here there is quite a bit of rideable single track all the way to the dog park near Merriman with a short section of road between Levan and Stark. Beyond that eastward it gets even better but you will have to ride the road at times. There is potential to the west as well. The best thing for these trails would be if there was more bike traffic on them. Starting a Trail Conditions and Comments thread is a great start. It should direct more traffic this way.
Thanks fellas!

yes..thats the parking area. the trail in about 100ft. to the left. the trail is all the way cut and rideable. Just needs some raking and maybe bench cutting in areas. You can also park at Hines and Levan parking area. The trail starts up the dirt rd. (Levan) past the bridge on the right side.

Well, depending on the rain situation for Saturday evening, I could come out and ride early Sunday morning and help out after. Although, if it looks like rain Saturday I'm going to ride Saturday.

I rode it at night Thursday night from the Newburgh end and the trail seemed to fade away before I came out at Levan. It looked like someone might have been messing with the flags that mark the trail. The last one that I saw looked to be down in the swampy area on the other side of a log and a bunch of debris. I walked in a couple directions but couldn't find my way out to Levan. Strava shows where I was wondering around looking for the trial. I ended up going back to old road and coming out at Levan that way. I'll have to ride in the daylight or maybe come in form Levan and try to connect from that direction.

Went out there this morning, and it's definitely a lot easier to follow. Back and forth twice. Really good job, guys. One thing of note - SIDESLOPE, and lots of it. Probably needs it because of runoff, but there were some sections where my cranks were hitting - probably could have used a 29er... Also saw this :D

Hey j! Met you today out at Lake view trails around newburgh lake. Thanks for the pavers. Went for a walk with my wife and Georgio( my dog), to show them the trails we built so far. Seen many mountain bikers on the 2 track (we need to get some signs up) and had a great time walking up and down the climbs.

Yup! Rode both the Newburgh Lake section and the original section and both are great. Lake kicked my butt with the climbs. Can also see where carrying a little too much speed could result in a splash.

Pavers are in two areas, as I thought it would be wise to split up in case someone found them and stole them. First spot is about 30 paces in on the left as you walk from parking to the trail head. Other spot is directly opposite the trail head. Both spots are about 6' in from the trail. I can get access to more but only for a little while longer, so let me know if you want or need more.

just wanted to say thanks for creating this trail! I've been exploring the area the last few nights. Great to have a trail within a 5 minute ride from my house in Plymouth!

Rode the trail back and forth from 275 to Levan several times this morning and the trail is perfect! The 275 entrance 're-route works very nice and the additional bench cutting Dave and I did on the hill going down to the log crossing makes for a better flow. River bends is drying out nicely. Only a few small muddy areas left. Seen and talked to many people riding and hiking.
