Another weekend with double workdays, this time at Greensfelder and Klondike Park. Both begin at the usual time- 9 am. More info on the Greensfelder Workday can be found here, and on the Klondike one here.
The Greensfelder workday is particularly important since we lost a workday 2 weeks ago to a St. Louis County Parks scheduling conflict. Those of you who have ridden there recently have seen how good a shape the trails can be in when we have some dry weather. Remember what Dogwood looked like before GORC started working on it?
We've spent some time looking at the existing trails, and have identified areas that are especially prone to damage, mostly due to drainage issues. We think that by fixing the most troublesome spots, it will go a long way to making the Dogwood and DeClue trails much better places to ride. We're going to try to get to as many of these areas as we can, but it's a very large project and isn't going to be able to be finished in one workday. We've also looked at the DeClue extension, and are considering reroutes for several areas. These should be ready to build in the Spring if all goes well.
