 Don't worry about moving the bridge back, it's gone! The section of trail between the lower pond and the creek is also gone. The smaller wooden bridge on Brian's trail will need moved back, it wasn't moved very far. I will be there tomorrow about 5:00 to get some trails cleared, lots of debris, sand and mud from the flood. I plan on parking at the ball fields and starting on the short loop east of the iron bridge.

My brother and I trimmed the the short loop east of the iron bridge and Brian's trail today.  I will be doing more trimming this week, hopefully using the park's equipment. I spoke to Steve (park employee) today, he thinks that the park/town are looking at getting the army corps of engineers to control the creek erosion problem next to the lower pond behind the pavilion.

I finished trimming the singletrack section from just south of the train trestle to where it comes out of the woods south of the pavillion.

Thanks for cutting the weeds back Todd! I have not even been over to Avon to ride this year, but it is still nice to know someone is doing some work to keep the trails open.

Thanks guys for keeping up on the Avon trail! I just spent weekend riding there and I had blast. I did pick up some trash but I wasn't prepared for it so there is more that needs cleaned up. I'd like to help with maintenance so just let me know when next time somebody is going over there and Ill do my best to be there. I live about 15 min. away from park but drive by it every day going to work and back. I'm relatively new to MBiking although I have been on the bike in one way or the other most of my life. Looking forward to meeting some of you guys.


    Thanks for all you do, e

Does HMBA still maintain and/or sponsor the Avon trails? Some of them are getting pretty rough, especially Eagle's Way and Poplar Pass. There are also several downed trees on the unnamed southern trails that need chainsaw work.
