Re: This Saturday Harris Hill trail day. 1 year 2 months ago #44607

Working fast and furiously on the HHE skills loop, some features should be in and rideable for the May 10 WNYMBA trail day at HHE.. be sure to come on down...

plan to be adding features (all natural mind you, nothing requiring nails or screws) will take suggestions, but if you suggest, you really ought to help..

The Equestrians were very nice allowing me to play with one of their new toys. Please be nice to them...if you come across horsey folk on your rides... remember horses are prey animals, greet the riders, talk in a calm manner, ask permission to pass, they might want to walk their horses off the trail a few yards. ask if you should walk past or ride, consider taking off your helmet. best to pass on the lower hill side of the horse (nasty toothed carnivores tend to attack from the high side). the above is what I have been told, if you different,do what you will..

Looking very promising for getting HHE and other areas to get packed and groomed for Winter riding fatbike, and xski next year..,, did a test run using a friend's sled, bet if I add a grooming drag, it will be even better... not sure if video link works..

Skill loop coming to HHE this Summer. Looks like I have the go ahead to put in a .1 to .15 skills loop just off the parking area at HHE. If the weather cooperates, I am hoping I can concentrate a lot of work on it during my Spring Break April 12th to the 20th... (yeah, sucks working in a school,, snow days, frigid days, winter and spring break)

There is a possibility of getting ahold of the County's Ditch Witch that is earmarked for the Equestrian trail development... I will just have to wash off all the horse poo first.... I will be interested in seeing how it does creating tread, helping with material moving, berms, whoops. etc.

I'll post back up on here when I get more info, but if anyone wants to toss me pics of some features, i'd be happy to consider them, it won't be lumber and screws, just natural stuff,, but I think it can be made to be fun and help develop more confidence as I plan on making the next trails at HHE, a bit more technical and feature filled.

dang,, very nice Jon...

no, the skills loop isn't in yet, but things are looking good, might be focusing on that early in the season...I think it will be a nice thing to do while waiting for others to arrive or suit up

Looks awesome. Are these in yet?

Saw the problems with the other posts. Is this the file attachment bug? Need to look into it. It's a known bug.

On another note, have all the Harris Hill trails in at MTBProject. Link to the embedded version here:

stomped Rib, no dab and humpty today,, should be fun for fat biking over the next week.

also I can't seem to toss up a pick of a small skill park loop I am hoping to get to put in off the parking area of HHE.. if the pic doesn't show up,, guess you will have to come down and see it yourself.

Still waiting on whether this can happen or not.. but I hope that something like this will be at the parking area at HHE this summer... will help the early folk pass the time for those late comers.
