I like the tree there, my concern is that it is getting low enough where you can't stay on the trail and go under. If you'all feel that it is ok to just ride around it, off the trail slightly, I am game for that. I wouldn't mind seeing lay across the trail and build a small, very, small log pile out of it.
bring on the timber, i'll go paul bunyan on the tree's (insert term of choice here), eh

I was fine with it in the old position, but it's gotten alot lower. I was only able to get out an "Oh, $h1+" before it took off several layers of skin :shock:. Riding around it will only make the trail wider. Plus, it's already moved - what if a rider bumps it and it falls on the person behind them? I'm all for challenging trails, but I think this is a different story. I'm not sure how secure it is with all the rain we've had.

Hey, how about a compromise? Someone mentioned making a log pile out of it? That would be great!

More drainage work.

Postby Sherpaboy » August 1st, 2004, 8:56 am

I spent another 3 hours outat Maybury on Friday. You will note the first mud hole (before the first climb) has been worked on. I used broke the burm and mud out of the way of the drainage downslope...then placed as many rocks into the pit as I could find or scavange from the following hill.

Please do me a favor and ride throuhg the puddle NOT TO THE RIGHT OF IT. This will help until I can get out there to finish the job. Also note that the right hand side of the puddle has a rahter large mud hill that you would have to ride through...Yuk.

Secondly I have added some off shoots to the climb just following this mud pit turn. Please ride straight through the first one (not much of any other option actually) and please DO NOT TEAR IT DOWN. There is a small burm with a troff behind it. This will help allow the water to shed off to the side before it can
A.) Build up speed and worsen the erosion
B.) Drain the water off to the sides before it can reach the mud pit proper.

Still more to do out at Maybury if anyone wants to join in the fun :D shoot me an e-mail southeast@mmba.org

Can anybody tell me if the Maybury MTB Trail is multi-use or just for Bikers? I almost plowed some runner-chick over last night...She was coming right at me...Thank goodness for brakes! :)

It's multi-use. Todd Scott runs the trail with the flow of bikes and passes people on foot!
