Trail Care Update 05/08/2017
Last Saturday afternoon we finished polishing up the new beginners loop ready for the bridge and rock armouring to go in. The best thing that can happen right now is for a couple of rainy nights to turn the loose dust into a nice, hard surface (but remember don’t ride the loop if it’s wet – let the water do it’s work).
Trailworx has now completely cut in the whole loop with only a slight tweak needed where we will add a separate exit a few metres up from the existing one.
Ranger Eugene will begin to build a new bridge over the creek crossing this week and will be shifting some of the sandstone around for it. Personally I like coming across bridges along trails – they mix things up and add a professional touch.
We’ve ordered a load of smaller sandstone blocks to be used for trail armouring along the loop – from memory I think there are 5 gully’s that will need rocks added so there’s a still a bit to do.
We’re estimating the loop will be complete within the next three weeks if all goes to plan.
As always thanks to our volunteers who came in to help!
