Trail Report

Pretty much a perfect Fall day. A mix of sun and clouds, light winds and temps near 50. The rest of the Pumpkin Run course was cleared today and things are looking great.  Tomorrow we will mark the course and do any last minute fine tuning. Photos from today.

Yet another beautiful Fall day with a mix of sun/clouds and a stiff breeze from the northwest ushering in some cooler air. Today we worked on the Pumpkin Run course, clearing forest litter and blowing leaves off the trail. Some incredible Fall color remains on sections of the trail and should be one of the more colorful Pumpkin Runs in the history of the event. We will continue working on the rest of the trails used for the Pumpkin Run. Should be a great day on Saturday. Photos from today.

Trail Report

A beautiful day in the woods. Trails drying out nicely after 3.5″ of rain over the weekend. Not much trail work other than Jim clearing out some underbrush near Sap Run ski trail. An early evening ride on the mountain bike course founds beautiful conditions. Expected the rain and wind from the weekend to take down the a lot of the leaves but on the north facing slopes, there is some incredible Fall color. A ride on the mountain bike course early this evening found fantastic conditions and amazingly dry….no mud. Things are looking great for the Pumpkin Run this weekend.
