I didn't really want to use the larger stuff that was there which was meant to disquise the old trail.
Don't get me wrong - the work was great. That part was a mess and now it is in great shape. Now that things are drying out (although we had some rain last night), this section should now get back to being dry and narrow like we like it. Thanks for the good work.
Looking at the weather radar before deciding to leave work right at 5 to hit the trails, I see E-ville got socked today with the redish-orange type of rain shower as it shows on the weather map (i.e. lots of rain). I guess that is what Litespeed saw .
I'm starting to see that the IMBA recommendation of not using flat stone to fill seeps or mud holes makes sense after seeing the ones that were put in Mirkwood in the Spring and now that the soil underneath the stones has dried the stones are being dislodged from the holes by bikes on a pretty reguler basis. The corduroy seems to stay put (albeit wood is not for ever).
I would think with the weather we are seeing this week that H.C. should finally be pretty rideable by this weekend.
Myself, and two freinds, rode Allegany yesterday and except for a few small muddy spots, the trails were in excellent shape (for wide double track that is!)
