    OK, but I reserve the right to bail out if Mike has us doing more harm than good. I won't do tread work when it's dry, I won't build out-sloped turns and I won't dumb down natural features.

    Not sure what we can accomplish in the dry. Clearing drains. Cutting brush maybe.

    Sorry to be negative. I am more than willing to do trail work when the ground is wet and someone who likes mt. biking is directing the work.

    The work is installing one of these at each end to keep the bikes out. :)

    I rode Lizards a few times recently, and I can't think of anything that needed work on that trail? Hopefully, it won't make it worse. The trail is fun as it is in my opinion,

    They need to work on making it narrow again at the beginning and doing away with all the P Lines.

    It is the line that the sissy riders who can't ride an existing line create, instead of learning how to ride the existing line as is.

    The best family friendly definition of "P" line that I've heard is “Parallel Line”
    (but we all know what it really means)

    To be fair, lizards does need a lot of TLC. It's needlessly beat up with braking bumps and bomb holes. Most of what it needs requires water like @herzalot said. I suppose you could clear the drains and stack brush to narrow the trail, but without water, that's it. Lower is in good shape but it's turning into double track because people can't manage to corner properly and stay on a trail.

    Rode it yesterday for the first time in like 2 months and could not believe how wide and beat up it is. The rocks that were installed to be the line and keep it sustainable in the rain are totally avoided by riders. If we get some rain and I can make it I would love to give back some time.
