I have to agree with Skidder-we should maintain existing trails rather than build new in HV (except for black trail to replace lost white trail) A few weeks ago when I rode there Rain and Sidewinder were in need of TLC

There is no more trail network at Holimont.
Going to be quite sometime before anything will be built there again.

That`s progress

Thanks for the update Mack, I apologize for being so hard on you, it wasn't personal.

Skidder, I agree that we could drop Growler, but I doubt we ever do any maintenance on it anyway. KC is useful for people riding up from Holimont and makes a nice extra loop around the lake, so I would vote to keep it. It would just be nice to not have to cut new trails to replace existing trails and instead concentrate on fixing/re-routing what needs work :)

The entire trail network around here was pretty beat up before the 6 hour race.

We have more trail than the small core group of volunteers can maintain.

Instead of building even more trail, I think we should step back and prioritize what we have and consider trying to maintain the best trails and close a few that are seldom used.

KC Trail and Growler are 2 trails I can think of that might as well go back to nature.

Rain Trail was de-bermed and drained last night. More to come as well as a series of proposed work days in the general vicinty to strengthen many sections-not just the race-course.
