Somebody chopped the tree root east end of LakeView near the clearing by the building. I thought it was fine and was a good challenge to squeak through there cleanly at speed. It's not the end of the world, but is easier not needing the same degree of precision. The trail was pretty dry yesterday and corner traction was more challenging than previous rides where traction was excellent.

The root I had pictured is still there, must be a different one.

The trail was great the other day, almost rolled through 8 ducks walking down the trail on Riverview and also saw buck with a pretty good start on a nice rack in velvet.

Could use some rain! Was slipping in corners clipped a tree and took a dirt sample. :)

Agreed, I slid out on the same corner on separate rides. Off camber dusty trail is tricky. Once on the mtb and once on the cx bike.

I saw the root you're talking about today. They cut out most but not all, either way they have no right

Riverview is perfect, the wettest sections are now grippy, not slick at all. Lake view is close to perfect but a little dry.
Who's orange paint is that on all the roots and stumps on the east half of Lakeview?

Lakeview is totally dry except for the low section on the one way west bound leg and Riverview has only a small puddle or two.
A great day for cornering.

Very little mud, great traction but a fair amount of hiker traffic today.

Are there any more projects/bridges/etc. needed for Hines trails?

My son needs to find his Eagle project...

Cool night ride last night. Some varmints and tons of silk. I was hoping someone else had ridden before me. I must have been glistening when I finished up.

large tree down between 275 and Ann Arbor Rd., will require a chainsaw. Riding West to East I think it was on the second section.

The big tree is just west of the boulders.
