Versailles Volunteers are Rock Stars!

After the recent storm damage, you guys killed it to get that trail opened up. My wife and I rode there yesterday and couldn't believe how much downfall you guys cut through, and little reroutes around tree roots. On top of what appeared to be more rock that had tumbled down the hillside on Cliffside and Creekside.


Huge props to the crew down there.

I'll bet their user-volunteer ratio is something to take note of. And, from one of the least visited trial systems in the state.


Magic.

Thanks guys! The northeast side of the park seemed to be hit even worse than our existing trails. Our volunteer turnout has been great though whether we're maintaining existing trails or building new ones. They are top notch. Hopefully the weather stays "normal" between now and Hassmer Fest!
If you aren't breaking stuff then you probably aren't doing it right!

YES.
They are amazing, I cannot believe how quickly that crew restored the trails after the July 17 storm. That was the heaviest treefall I have ever seen on a mountain bike trail.
