Going to hit the DCF trails at 2pm tomorrow for an afternoon scoot!Johnny in Everything
Andy and I got out last weekend and marked out the next project…”The Ravine Run” trail. The County has inspected and approved our proposed route so we have now started. Andy got out this week to do a bunch of chainsaw work. The next step is to remove all the logs and small debris along the route. If you have time and wish to help please feel free to do so. The trail heads off about 1/2 along the new Max Extension Trail. You will see the orange flags marking the general plan for the trail (this will likely change a bit as we go along). Removal of debris and small saplings is the next task to be completed then we will leaf blow, clear again and go from there. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks and hope everyone is enjoying the trail additions!Johnny in Everything
Please be advised that there is an equestrian event this weekend in the Main Tract. This is “Debra’s Ride for Breast Cancer” and is a held as a fundraising event. They will be following the Pink equestrian loop. The cycling trail does cross this loop often so please exercise caution as you are approaching intersections as equestrians have the right of way. If you have a bell give it a ring as you approach the crossings and if you encounter an equestrian speak up so they know you are there. Feel free to ride through the field and say hello and interact with the equestrians…you should be well received. Have a great weekend!Johnny in Everything
Hi all! Monica is hosting a ride/campout on August 23-24th. Kolapore ride Friday afternoon for those who can make it followed by food, beverages and campout/bonfire at Monica’s place (right by Kolapore). Saturday AM will be a ride at 3 Stages. More details will follow but there is room for tents and small trailers at her place. Feel free to join in for any part of “Weekend at Monica’s” that you can make it to!
Best to RSVP in some way if you are coming for the campout. I can pass names on to Monica or let her know next time you see her.
Thanks Monica, Cheers!Johnny in Everything

Please help out if you can.

Hi everyone, please be aware that there is an equestrian event happening this weekend in the Main Tract. OTRA will be there August 2nd to August 5th and will be conducting various rides throughout the weekend.
Please exercise caution while out there this weekend. Pay extra attention when crossing the equestrian trails as not to surprise an equestrian and their horse. If you come upon someone, please stop and speak up so the horse will become aware that you are present. If you ride with a bell, a quick ring as you are approaching the crossings would also be a good idea to alert riders. If you don’t have a bell, not a bad idea to get one!
As always be courteous and friendly.
Between everyone cooperating and paying attention I’m sure everyone will have an uneventful enjoyable weekend. It’s all about mutual understanding and respect for each other.
Enjoy your time in the Forest.Johnny in Everything
Our gang had a chance to ride the new ME Trail last night (both directions!). It seemed to ride quite well despite being only 24 hours old. It still will need traffic and rain (please rain!). Still a little more raking and corner polishing to do but it won’t stop you from having a good time on it.
The MC trail is definitely starting to firm up and get some fun flow to it.
Watch for the next one…an add-on to the ME Trail…the “Ravine Run” coming soon! This one is going to be super fun.Johnny in Everything
Myself, Joe, Shawna and Chris W got out today to work on the new MET. Joe and I “Gertied” (Joe said he doesn’t want to see Gerty for awhile!) the first bits connecting both ends to the next fire road. It was extremely loamy and required Shawna raking it before we Gertied. Final raking has been done and is ready ride but will likely be a bit soft until it gets some traffic on it. Once it packs in it should be a fun trail. As for the next section, it was completely different ground consistancy and we are going to try it with a good clean up (thanks Shawna!) and just an aggressive raking (thanks Chris!). It’s approx 1km long so give it a go and help pack it in. We will now add in the “Ravine Run” to it for our next project.
Thank you so much to the gang that came out to help today!
It’s Max approved!
