New Pipline was cut in the Trail

Post by pokerbob22 » Mon Nov 10, 2008 4:21 pm

It was impassable on the return trip but as I passed the equiptment operater with the Tree Shredder was covering the entry trail with limb and tree debris.
Until it is cleared it appears to be unridable but we should be able to carry the bikes over until they dig the large pipeline as was described by the men working there.
The pipline was marked by the wood sticks they put in previously just past the rough concrete dam we ride over to avoid the constant water.
It is about 1 mile or less headed in the trail. Before the teter toter area.
If you cant find me, I'm probably riding somewhere

WTF? I am having problems understanding what you are talking about.
And then it came time to descend Mountain Lion trail. Descending mountain lion is like drinking a Margarita through a crazy straw on a trampoline. It's like giving a dog Pop Rocks. It's like a knife fight with a monkey. It's like necking with an octopus. http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=301909

Don't Stress, You just have to carry your bike across the shredded wood.
Brent rode across it but I am not risking my tires.
It is only about 50 yrds wide if that much. as far as where, on the entry trail, where you ride over the white cement like blocks to avoid the water/mud hole liess than a mile int the trail.

Bob, are they just clearing the area or they going to dig up the area? Eric or Dan do you know what they are doing or can you find out?

They told me there were clearing the path to come back and lay a pipline there.
I asked if we would be able to get through and they said ther would have to dig ditch.
I did not ask how big a ditch, wish I had.
I also did not ask a timeline.

I went for a ride his morning and saw the new right of way that has been cut for the first time. At first I couldn't find the trail on the other side of the clearing so I built a little tepee out of branches where the trail continues so it is easier to find. Should be helpful to some people.

There's a path cut through it so riding it is a non-issue for now.

It should be fine for riding until the dig a pipeline trench (if they don’t directional drill it). If anyone gets wind of which company is laying the pipeline, let me know and I will find out the scoop.
