ictures don't quite give you the scale, but think smooth and think big. Rick cut the backbone of the freeride, downhill course this past week that he and PhatJay have been laying out. Next phase will be refinement with a bobcat, then final tweeking with bikes and hand tools.
The XC course will be seeing some changes, the drop into the bowl (upper powerline) is gone, instead a new rocky section has been located and cut in on the ridge line, it will take a couple days to get it done but the Team Soupcan showed up in force and helped cut the corridor of the new trail which will overlook the new freeride area. A decent size bridge will have to be made, or alot of rocks...we'll figure it out. The speed of the upper bowl will be missed, some will shed tears, other will whine and complain, but give it a chance, this is only year 2 of the Vulture's Knob rehab.
We also flagged out some new XC trail above junkyard hill and another section near ant town. We'll announce some trail days in the near future. If your itching to lend a hand, shoot me an email or reply and I'll let you know when we are down there... until then, enjoy!
