    Trees down: I met the chainsawer who cleared the 1 on Viper in the middle of the pump track. I pointted him to the 3 on Viper before the pump track, west side of the paved path.

    2018-08-29: MD Black Hill East 4 pm, 88 °F, Green. Some dust, mostly dry to damp, some muddy spots are drying up on Cabin Branch & Hoyles Mill, no standing water. The muddy spots are play-dough like, ready for rolling over to reshape them smooth. Hard Rock, as always, was rock hard.

    New trial is in: I call it the “New Hamilton Trail”. Its a hooty swoopy down hill instead of the Optical Fiber Line from Field Crest to Hamilton.

    2018-11-20: MD: Fairland 12 pm, 48 °F, Yellow. No dust, mostly dry to damp, some muddy spots. Trails were 99 % excellent dry to damp hardpack. I estimated about 100 feet of mud pits in about 10 miles of trail. Crow’s Foot was the worst contender- a few mud pits 20 to 30 feet long, mostly on the high elevation areas of the trail. Also on Crow’s Foot, there was a wet area about 80 feet long with about 1/8 inch of water covering mostly a hard rocky surface- this is just south of where Crow’s Foot crosses Little Paint Branch Trail (the asphalt trail).

    The new bridge on Viper is in, but access is still blocked off.
