No trail build can start without proper nutrition.
Ever since the first trail was cut through the Erie Forest on the Sunset West property, I’ve hated the sharp right hand corner as you exit the trees. And I’m not the only one. Well, a few days ago we did something about it.
With a solid crew of seven volunteers, we started with our safety briefing then went started cutting up the trail.
This is the dreaded corner as work was beginning.
After many rounds of cutting the corner, riding it, and adjusting the curve we ended up with a sweet berm.
As the berm was wrapping up, Jeff found a nice rock and came up with an idea to put it in the trail so he could “drop” it. I thought that was a great idea so we cut in a foundation and set the stone. This 4″ drop has a nice sloping exit and a ‘go-around’ if you’re not up for it. I’m calling it “Jeff’s Drop”.
Then, of course, we had to try it out.
And here’s Junior Downhill racer Armen Davis ripping the new features that he helped build.
