Trail Maintenance Required! Post locations here!
« on: August 24, 2015, 02:05:05 PM »
This is a place where riders can report trail issues, such as trees down.

To make it possible for the chainsaw crew to hike in and get to any fallen trees more quickly and easily, please identify the trail, and any landmarks, intersections or features that may help locate the fallen tree. Sometimes chainsaw crews will know shortcuts to get to different locations, saving them a longer hike.


For instance--"On Rocky Ridge" is nice to know, but is incomplete information. Rocky Ridge is two miles long, with two ways to access it. "From the campground, head down Rocky Ridge past the intersection with Breeden Ridge, but before you get to the the big berm turn" is much more helpful.

Tree's down.

Rocky ridge not far from the start about a 10th of a mile from the road at the park entrance.

Breeden Ridge a 10th of a mile from the pond at the top of the hill opposite side of all the jumps.

Thanks. I think Jason may have caught a couple of them recently, but we've had a lot of wind again these past few days.

The description for the Rocky Ridge tree is confusing--"from the road at the park entrance". Rocky Ridge doesn't run to the park entrance. Would that be down from the campground entrance, perhaps?

We're planning another trail maintenance day in early April, to get the trails cleaned up for the season. Stay tuned for more details or visit O'Bannon Woods Mountain Biking on Facebook.

my bad not rocky ridge but the trail that starts by the park entrance opposite of Fire Tower, think it's Group Camp.  IT's not far from the road.

Roger that. It's a leaner, just behind the maintenance sheds. We're aware of it, but need some additional help with it. We'll see if we can get it yet this weekend.


By the way, our next trail maintenance day is scheduled for April 3rd. We'll meet at the Nature Center at 10:30.
