Trail Groomer

Lower Trail Improvement & Maintenance

  • Plans for main bridge construction on Tuesday, 12/6/16. We are in need of extra hands to help complete both approaches before freezing conditions make work impossible.
  • Floating bridge on Full Supper will wait until Spring for installation. Elements of the bridge may be constructed during winter work days and then set in place in Spring.
  • Matt Boggess will install physical barriers on Upper and Lower Trail heads by 12/1/16 to discourage use. Lower trail will reopen when ground is frozen and/or snow covered.
