It is finally drying up and the skeeters were not bad today . I started mowing with a DR trimmer but it broke , hope to have it fixed in the morning . Could sure use some help trimming back the bushes . Andy R . has added another skinny to go with All Mountains log ramp . Alan G . also helped me fix the tree on the ridge line so you can ride right across it now without slowing down . Still waiting on Baker College to allow another close to mile of trail on their land .

I rode it not too long ago for the first time in a while. Was pleasantly surprised to see the new bridge work. I'm glad someone cut out the tree that I was going to build a second ramp over. I got distracted and put that off for way too long.

If I can get off my current 12 hour work schedule, I hope to get out there and can help with trimming. Not sure when that will happen, though.

Just an update. Yellow all clear, I think. Also cleared just the first ~100 yards of the main connector by the lake, but there was still another blockage further down when I ran out of time. Also, walked and cleared a short section of blue from Satan's hill, down along the swamp, back to where it crosses up yellow.

The rest of blue/red I'm not sure of current status.

For some reason this trail has been off my radar. How far is this trail from the CIS rail trail?

Finally got out there with the saw to take care of a few trees on yellow. I *think* yellow and blue are clear, but I haven't ridden the parts toward Baker College in a few weeks, so there may be stuff out that way.
