Re-Routing The Trail
Once you get around the first outcropping, which I will have to examine closer for drop and roller potential, the route I chose comes to a really big exposed rock that you can roll, ride down the side, or drop further off. For the horses, there is a go around through an existing breach in the stonewall, looks like it was made by a skidder. On the other side are more exposed rock that definitely has roller and drop potential. The trail then hooks around back and moves down the slope at a nice angle and keeps coming around till it lines up perfectly with route to the stream crossing. I will get pictures next time through when I go in to mark that section of the trail.
Below is the start of a stunt at the big fir. When Tom cut this up, he made it too wide, however, I rolled one of the pieces back into the opening which narrowed it down some. Might want to consider putting a smaller log in here to prevent an ATV from having easy access. If they are going to be on this trail illegally I am going to make it as hard as possible for them to have a good time. What I am going to do is dig out a hole for this chuck on log to sit in so that it's flush with the ramps on either side, which will make it a fun little challenge.
