TOPIC: This Saturday Harris Hill trail day.

Re: This Saturday Harris Hill trail day. 2 years 5 months ago #43156

last weeks weather event toppled a bunch of widow makers, of course many landing on the trails. our squad is leaf blowing and chainsawing away,, so again.. by Saturday I am guessing HHE will be open for business for anyone wanting to take the drive.

one of the possible considerations if a race is hosted next Fall ... I liked FG's comment in the other topic. want to give the experts a nice long look at the our loops down here..

I am thinking,
expert do everything twice, which should give them about 20 miles total, give or take
sport do all loops once plus repeating 2 of the 3 loops. about 14 miles
and beginner, doing the first 3 original loops for about 6 miles.

I think we can route things so beginners are pretty much off the course as the expert and sports go around again... but this is just a tentative thought.

are those mile numbers adequate?

Personally, to maximize my racing dollar, I'd like to get 24-25 miles. I'd still show up for 20 though ;-)
Not very fast but havin' fun!

SLU will keep that in mind, I would think we can stretch it out a bit longer, I'll certainly be turning to those who regularly set these things up for their ideas..
Not sure yet if we will use of the overland, but there ought to be passable sections throughout parts of the loops since some of the single track uses overgrown skid roads...

rounding out the lunch menu is my wife's pasta salad, and I am told there may be some homemade treats...

well, we had close to 30 people.. a troop of cub scouts came out to rake, but they couldn't stay for lunch.. but they did their best and I was thrilled to have them. we had all sorts of folks come out of the wood work... good food, some good trail set down. had a few from wnymba and a few from namba and I guess a whole bunch of "private contractors" but hey, I won't turn anyone away....

a very rough idea of the progress on the new loop. the pink is what the Spring group work day completed.. the blue is what's been done since. most of it sort of rideable, but a few areas still need some work (so don't try). the yellow is flagged and partially trimmed, but the fern and undergrowth are working faster than I am capable of. as I get older I am working slower, so this loop might be open by end of August, as always let me know if you got time to help. tools on site, so you can ride down to work area.
