Middle Run Work Party - Saturday October 17, 2015 - 9 AM McGlynn's

Club purchased some log handling tools to work on Double Horseshoe/Tonto's Last Stand.  Purposely left the log on the trail to see what would happen.  Interesting concept that we can definitely improve.   What does the volunteering community want?  Show up and help us put the new tools to work.

Would also like to prepare a downed oak tree for a new skinny.  It's located on the connector between Possum Hollow and Double Horseshoe near the only creek crossing in Middle Run.  It's a big project but, we need to replace some of our rotting skinnies.

We also need to mow Middle Run's White Clay Connector.  Since we're mowing this section, probably should take care of the tree top near Smith Mill.  It's kind of ruined the flow around the first corner.

Trail Report MR/WC 10-5-15

Trails were in good shape with no standing water, a few bird baths, but over all good to excellent shape. One dead fall in the Pines on the Possum Hollow loop. It is apparent that the recent work by the trail care crew is really paying off with grade reversals, nicks, and positive side slope all contributing to excellent drainage for the trail system. WE notice several rangers over at White Clay near dusk, remember night riding is not currently permitted in White Clay State Park while we wait for the State to approve their proposed trial night ride program in White Clay. Now go ride your bike.

Brandywine Trail Maintenance

We had an outstanding turnout for this Saturdays trail work at Brandywine State Park, Woodlawn Preserve, & First State National monument. Chris Zeliznak worked with Park Superintendent, Angle Burns to schedule the event. Brooke Derr from the First State National Monument attended our work party to observe and guide. I want to also thank Joel Flambaum, Casey Chaudhry, James Knight, Michelle Davduk, Jill Pagliei, Tomi Ogborn, Chip Mippert, John Mays, John Williams, Arturo Castillon, John Talucci who volunteered their time and effort to maintain the trails. With everyone's help we were able to clear dead falls from numerous trails; Veil of Clouds, Blue Trail, River Trail, Sweet Willie (Middle & Upper), and Boy Scout. We also had a team trimming trails with the power trimmers and raking and cleaning up debris. Well done on all accounts now go out and ride!
