Doesn't much matter. I love both places. I'd be happy to help at the lakes if that's where the attention is most needed.

Trail 7 at the lakes gets overgrown every year and is available. Also trail 1 hasn't been adopted yet either.

Thanks to Jody Coeyman for adopting The New One at The Lakes. He offered to take care of the trimming over the spring and summer so we don't get torn up by thorns in the open exposed sections.

First post has been updated.

Great, you can have your pick of any trail there. Just about all of them get grown over in the spring. Just let me know which one you decide on. Thanks.

Trail 7 still needs one or two people to look after it.

For downed trees check w/ me first. There is a lot of gray area but generally if the tree is negotiable by bikers and horses it can stay. If it is to large for either (this is where the gray area is) it should be removed to prevent braids. If the tree is in a widow maker position it's the parks problem to deal with. We can use chainsaws in the parks but I have to let Mike Fobes know when we will be doing that.

Hey trail adopters, nows the time when the trails really need some attention. With all of the rain that we had over the last few months and now the hot, hot, sun the trails are growing in quick. If you can spare an hour or two to go out and trim back the overgrowth it would be greatly appreciated by all. I should have sent you all a link that you can enter you trailwork hours on the website. If I missed you or you lost the link contact me by PM and I will send it to you.

Also, thanks to Jim-S for going out and working on the Goat trail today.

I can take Broken Arrow and will most likely walk Rusty Chair tomorrow with the machete and cut back some of the tighter spots.
