Please contact me if you are doing chainsaw work at Brown County.  We have had several cases this year, where our chainsaw crew has carried a saw out to get a reported downed tree, only to find someone has already cut it out.  The work is good and we do need more chainsaw volunteers.  We just need anyone running a chainsaw to communicate with use.  We have a tool we use so our chainsaw crew and trail leaders can communicate.

So if you have been chainsawing or know who has been chainsawing, please send me a PM.  We aren't upset with the work being done, it just really sucks to carry a saw to find a tree already cut out.  Especially when there are other trees that could have been cut out.

Also, if you hand saw out a tree that has been reported, please let us know of the forum that you cut it out. 

Thanks,

Paul

Do park staff ever cut them out, or do they leave that to the mountainbike association affiliated with the park?  Just wondering if they could be the ones cutting some of it out.

Tree on North Tower at about the bottom of the downhill from the tower trail head.
Will need a chainsaw unless a few folks can get the tree to roll. I couldn't get it to roll over the stubs left from the limbs.

Went out to do this on Saturday, but it had already been done.  See Paul's post above.

The "Trail Guide" link is showing "bad closed" for Brown County.  I just finished a ride at SWW and the trail was perfect.


I would venture to say the trails in BCSP are good to ride as well as I only live 20 minutes from the park and my trails at home are good to go as well.


The last update was 3 days ago.  Remind me again why we abandoned the system we had and went to the IMBA trail guide?

Wall,

I updated the individual trails yesterday to yellow except Hobbs (which has some issues right now). I do think that I neglected to hit the "Brown County State Park" button as I tend to focus on the individual trails. It is now fixed.

The reason we went to the new system as there were very few people who had access to make changes. It created a ton of work for those people and there was constant complaining that it was not up to date.   It is up to the mountain bikers to post what they see. If it is not up to date, it is no ones fault but the riders who have ridden the trails.

Cool.  I was unaware that we were able to update the trail status ourselves.  I'll check it out.

Yes, Anyone can update the trails on mtb project.  The hope is that gives more up to the minute statuses from riders actually on the trails. If you have the mtb project app, you can do it right from the trail.

Trees down, they are all going to need a chain saw.

North Tower - close to 2 ft in diameter and slightly above the trail.  N39° 10.992' W86° 14.151'. (I suspect this is the tree reported in the post above). 

Aynes - 15" diameter, slightly above the trail. N39° 10.686' W86° 13.666'
Aynes - Two trunks, 8" diameter with a few smaller branches.  N39° 10.610' W86° 13.656'

smallish tree down on bobcat that can probably be handled with a hand saw. it's not too far in from the entrance closest to Aynes.  it looked too big to just drag off the trail.

 I was going to post a photo of a tree down but it seems like I am doing it wrong.  It’s on north tower. Contact me and I can send a screenshot of its location and amount of tree down.

Thanks

Here's the two trees on Aynes
