    Strawberry is in typical late fall condition. Looooose on the downhill into the Potrero. Brush not too bad.
    Gabrielino from Red Box to Switzers is fast and fun. No trees down.

    Strawberry is in great shape after the trailwork. Still needs some brush work, especially in the Potrero.
    3 new trees down on the Gabrielino between Red box and switzers. Heads up!

    Thanks Ross! Last Sunday we had 46 people out, and like 30 wildland firefighters, they were doing amazing work. We did nearly all the treadwork projects from Josephine to the "Trail" rock.

    We are planning to work on Ken Burton on Dec 8th! The entire trail needs heavy brush work and we need as many hands on it as we can. We also will try to use lots of power tools and bob trailers to tow them up so we can get as much done as possible! Details to appear soon in the usual mediums (FB, insta, eventbright)

    I’ll come out and help but for a trade off, AT in Acton is in desperate need of a big posse of trail clearers top to bottom!

    San Gabes DG is prime! We organized a little MWBA work day on El Prieto yesterday adding some sustainable drains for managing water as well as rehabbing a corner. But today I ride!20191129_095227.jpg

    Our new Pres, carrying more tools than all the rest of us guys:

    The Ken Burton work day should be posted up on social media today, I'll start up a thread for that when it shows up. Go ride your bikes!

    Quick note re: Mt. Wilson area conditions::

    "The last storm did some severe damage in the Mt. Wilson area (north side, West Fork). Many hundreds of trees blown down on Shortcut Road and Rincon Road (probably also all trails in the area). I did what should have been a quick ride yesterday that turned into a '3 hour tour' as I dragged my bicycle through the horizontal forest. This is the worst deadfall event I've seen up there!" (quote from a note I posted on another site)

    The trails in the immediate area - Shortcut Silver Moc, Rim Trail, Kenyon-Devore, Gabrielino east of Red Box, Valley Forge - are probably all quite blocked. Not sure if this also affects Gab west of Red Box or Strawberry Peak.

    Big tree down near the top of Valley Forge, didn't go any further down.
    Tree down about a half mile up from Red Box on the Strawberry trail.
    It's that time of year.
