Post Canyon

I’ve actually not ridden my bike in months, I know, horrible. We’ll deal with that later. For now, in case you’ve not worked on/donated to HRATS projects, here’s their latest newsletter with updates about new trails – and trails that are currently closed. It’s a drag to have trails closed, but respecting those closures is important for all of us. So go explore some new routes and do what you can to help rebuild damaged trails!

Fall Post Canyon Work Parties and other News

Hello Everyone,
The first HRATS Post Canyon work party is this Saturday Nov. 4th at 9:30.   Meet at Family Man.   The last work party is Saturday Nov. 18th.  As always there is a lot to be done our beloved trails.   Please come help make them better.   There is a job for everyone.

New Trails
There are two exciting new trails being started this fall.

Craig Spaeth is spear heading a trail called Eldorado.   It will be a beautiful trail that traverses from Middle 8 Track up to the trails above Bins Hill staging area.   It will be a fantastic way to climb to the upper sections of PC.   It will also be for those wanting a mellower way down.

Eldorado will also include a beginner section that traverses from Middle 8 Track down to the bottom of Upper GP.   This will give riders the opportunity to ride 8 Track as a fairly easy and short loop.  A well needed addition.

Also, Gary Pasch is putting in a 3rd line at Extended Play.   It will be a trail that starts well above the other Extended Play lines and creates a playful way to do Extended Play without mandatory air.   We expect it to be very popular.

Both trails will require community support with work parties and donations to pay for machine time.   So please be ready to give both in the spring……..Donations can start anytime though!

If you see Craig, Gary or any other trail builder around, please thank them for their hard work.   Buy them a beer if given the chance.

Lastly:
Thanks to everyone who stayed out of closed areas during and after the fire.   Unfortunately, many did not and our community took a credibility hit with the county.   Please remember that the county controls the trails and we should respect that.

Mitchell Ridge is now open.   The top half is basically a road, but ridable.   It will be improved in the spring.

Kingsley is closed for upgrades to the reservoir and the camp ground.   Please stay away from Kingsley.   The County is making it a better place for everyone.

Also please stay off closed fire line areas.   The riding is not good and the county is often working in those areas with huge machines.

I hope everyone had a great riding season and is ready to help our trails.

Take Care,
Tim Mixon
