      Recently leaf blown. We got rid of the leaves and sticks from the previous report. Left the rocks though because this is WV DIY flow trail.

       Small chunky rocks make it hard to get going. Add a seasons worth of leaves on top and make your riding extra cautious. Took this trail to get up to genes from mother of crack.

       Thanks for the comments. Super early season right now. We’ve been out cutting trees. Tread work and leaf clearing starts in April after freeze thaw is over. At least you found a warm day.
