Any word on how wet the trails are from any rain last night? Did it rain down there? I'm in Lackawanna and it's wet this morning from last night's storm.

I like the idea of the teeter looks fun, and I like the challenge of the fallen tree, works out nice. But unfortunately...

This is not a democray!!!!!

Can't we just cut a notch in the log? Many options then-

1. Ride over log and then onto log (hardest)

2. Ride through log and than onto log

3. Ride over log and than continue on trail

4. Ride through log and than continue on trail (easiest)


Everybody happy then!! :D D

this tree ruins the approach to the log ride, which I prefer compared to a log hop and has been there since the beginning.. At least cut a section out to make the log ride accessible again.


Why not take the time to learn how to get over the log prior to the log ride?

The mentality of some WNY MTB riders is crazy! Might as well see if the county can pave the trails with the extra millings from the work they are doing on 240 right now :shock:


I like riding the log. I also can get over the down tree obstacle. But I can't get over the down tree fast enough to ride the log. The down tree is just to close and can't get up the speed (on my single speed) to do the log ride. it ruins the approach to the log ride.

I am all in favor of keeping down trees, logs, logs ride, rocks, and anything else to make it more challenge to ride the brook.

Can't we just get a musclebound guy with a blue mask just to pick up the tree and move it to a new location?
