An Observation...Maclean Creek.

Postby Spinalguy » Tue Jun 13, 2017 3:25 pm

rant on...i notice that a lot of trees on the ground that have been there forever are slowly being chainsawed away. Really changes so many of the trails out there to much easier.
i wish whoever is responsible would stop and just become a better rider. i noticed last season and now this season even more stuff is gone or cut.
off the top of my head...

Stallion
Lone Ranger
Area 51

Rant off :D

I would 100% agree. Log crossings are one of the best parts of our single track. :thumbsup:

Personally I was annoyed at campers chainsawing big trees that have laid on the ground for years in some of the flat areas. Those were excellent for practicing log crossings but I guess they better served the public users as firewood for a few people. :banghead:

I also agree. I think the stallions ones were done by quadders. I have not made it to 51 this year but definately whoever is doing their own selective logging knock it off leave challenging trails challenging.

First, it wasn't me. I haven't been to McLean in quite some time. Second, I always had Dobi ride my bike over the logs.

We rode Area 51 couple of weeks ago and I didn't notice any obvious freshly cut logs. That trail is still good fun.

I have an auto clutch so I can go over logs. It is more likely someone with a conventional clutch having troubles w log crossings but way too fragile to admit their inabilities. :O

I did some clean up work on Area 51 back when there was still snow on the ground, but didn't remove any logs on the ground, just took down some low hangers and knee busters.
