We had a great day of trail work on Sunday, despite the somewhat “bitter” cold start to the morning. Once the sun came up, the day turned into a postcard perfect fall day. Eight hearty volunteers left the Adams Gulch trailhead shortly after 8 a.m. and rode around the Adams Gulch Loop and onto the upper Adams Gulch Trail near Fox Peak. We worked on the lower half of a reroute that we started earlier this summer. Once completed, the reroute will replace a 1/4 mile section of steep, loose, rutted “trail” through a beautiful open meadow and replace it with a nearly 3/4 mile reroute of beautiful flowy hand-built single track trail.
We worked until 4:30 before calling it a day and heading back to the trailhead. The fruit of our labor was nearly 900 ft. of beautiful, properly built, new single track trail that will be a beautiful new addition to this route.
We still have approximately 900 ft. of trail left to build to complete the project. If the weather holds, we may try and get back up there toward the end of the month. If not, then we’ll finish it up next spring as soon as it melts out.
Huge “thank you” to Guy Cherp, Carter Ramsey, Brett Stevenson, Cameron Lloyd, Chris Leman, Todd Byle, Rebecca Rusch, and Greg Martin for braving a cold morning and making our trail system even better. Also, we’d like to say “thanks” to Wise Guy Pizza for the love and the great pizza afterward.
