Hi,

We will have a low  social distanced work day this Saturday 4/25  9AM - Noon. We'll fix up the trail head and do hand tool dirt work. Please bring gloves and wear a mask or bandana.

Contact William or Jon if you have any questions.

I trimmed all of Fairview last week. Both wooded sections from the parking lot to the power line and all the single track west of the prairie as it connects to BH still need it. If you go out to help there is a trimmer, gas, and string in the job box at the trail head. Just bring your own ear protection and head net.

Things that need doing:

Trim Landowski Downhill
Trim from parking to Fairview
Trim all of the west woods

Chainsaw the headache tree on Sasquach
Cut a few branches that reach out over the mobile boardwalks at the mud hole on the connector to BH

Got most of the two-way trail trimmed, site-lines are a little better.  Still some trimming to do out at the far prairie and Mulligan.  Also trimmed the jump line and added a wooden take-off to the third jump.  Now you are much less likely overshoot and land on the flat.  It seems like it's riding pretty good, but let me know if you've got feedback.

We are having a work session aided by a UTV to shuttle west this Tuesday at 5 PM. Dress for bugs, weeds and dirt. Head west if you're late. It helps planning if we know how many are attending.

Thank you.

New to mountain biking in the last few months. Pleasant View has rapidly become my favorite trail system and I ride here often. Happy to volunteer for helping with upkeep as needed.

Trimmed fairway from where the last work day crew stopped in the mid prairie up to the last switchback/berm prior to the west woods.

Trimming, improving sight lines, deberming, clean up, fix up flow and wear spots. Bench and berm repair if there's enough help.

Hopefully get enough done to only ride bikes until the fall work day.
