    WHAT: Chiquito Trail brushing
    WHEN: Saturday, April 20th
    MEETING AT: Blue Jay Campground at trail head parking area
    TIME: 8:00 AM sharp

    From the trail head parking area in the Blue Jay Campgrounds we will hike to Chiquita Falls in Lion Canyon. We will start brushing once we top out on the ridge and begin the 1-mile downhill towards the Falls. This is the main area to be brushed. Almost 100% of this section needs work. We will be leaving from the trail head at 8:00 (so please arrive ready to leave at 8:00) and returning at 1:00. Bring gloves, water and trail snacks. Lunch will be served after the trail work.

    Aaaack - Daddy duty on Saturday after my self-indulgent ski trip this week. Sorry I cannot join in. Thank you for your work. Now I have to actually go ride there, since I never have.

    I didn't mean to gloss over the worthy aspect of this trail. It's one of the few Santa Ana trails that I would call badass. It's like nothing else I've done in the area. The embedded rocks and features are super fun technical challenges, if one likes that sort of stuff. One of the few trails you truly can justify squish; any crash can be serious. Not that different from the burlier offerings on the Front Range and Tahoe. I can't believe I only got on it once, but thanks to Gary and Dave for showing me around. And Tyler...where art thou?

    Thanks again, whoever makes it out for the buffing session.
