I also have no idea what a PWS is.

Rode Hunter's again last night. I would say the conditions were the same as my last post. I tried to venture towards the lower parking lot after I crossed the pipeline, but it got nasty really fast, so I turned around.
The orange trail between intersects 31 & 34 used to be one of the best downhill sections in WNY. Unfortunately, the pws's have completely ruined it because they must have been scared. Would it be possible for us(or me) to repair that trail, returning it to it's past glory and put some signage indicating a more difficult section and for users to stay on the trail? The flow has been ruined completely!

I got a WNYMBA wagon (that we used to carry stones) in my backyard and it has about 4" of water in it from the daily rain from Friday through Tuesday. So I am not surprised Hunters is in poor shape. I am going to try the Brook tonight as TJ said it was good. We'll see.

I agree with the despair about the braiding from 31 to 34. Used to be the best flow section but that is all gone now. Not sure how to fix it, other than to block off the go arounds. But those won't last. And few people read signs.

Greg did a nice piece in the recent e-mail newsletter, urging people to go over roots, not around them. Not sure why this is so hard to learn. Sort of like the face palms I do all the time when I see tire tracks around flat rocks placed in mud holes to provide a dry tread for the trail. Some people go out of the way to go around them and making a wider mudhole!!

Vote #3 as to not knowing what a pw is.

Pussy! There I said it.

Re: Latest Hunters Conditions 1 year, 2 months ago #44239

Garick, You are correct, that is the section.

Re: Latest Hunters Conditions 1 year, 2 months ago #44240

Jon, Maybe we could be more aggressive in our block-offs using something imbedded in the ground instead of laying branches. I don't know, I get depressed and pissed when I ride it and I used to get exhilarated.

Re: Latest Hunters Conditions 1 year, 2 months ago #44241

that was always one of my favorite sections too and you are right, its pretty much ruined.

People will always go around rocks and roots, especially newbs.

That's why they buy 29'ers!!! (mountain bikes with training wheels)

This is not just a widening, but actual re-routes away from the challenges.

Re: Latest Hunters Conditions 1 year, 2 months ago #44247

What drama?

I hate seeing the trail get wide and dumb. Unfortunately there is no good solution for it and it IS NOT just the newbs going around roots and what not.

Re: Latest Hunters Conditions 1 year, 1 month ago #44263

you just gotta give'r

If you know the trails very well, and you want an abbreviated ride while you track down only the dry ones, go for it. Otherwise, pick one of the many other trails that aren't a perpetual swamp.

This is not the "summer of Hunters Creek"....

Had a great ride there Wed. eve. Unfortunately, it rained most of Wed. night. I would think by Sunday the more sustainable loops would be OK.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
