Trails are running great! Ground is saturated making trail work interesting.

Looking forward to great things on Seymour for 2015!

Trails are saturated. Good day to hike your favorite trail, do some drainage and scope out new projects!

Rode Corkscrew[HTML_REMOVED]Dale's[HTML_REMOVED]Forever After[HTML_REMOVED]High school league last night. Looks like a landslide (?) on the section of trail between Corkscrew and Ned's (Mushroom?). Big rock in the middle of the trail and some trees down. Tree down just before the fork for Dale's/Ned's, and a large tree down on Lower Dale's that required crouching under.

Luckily the forecast was wrong this weekend. Most of the rain fell overnight and it was mostly warm and dry today. Most of the trails are running well and not as boggy as expected. Top of C buster was the exception, pretty muddy but worth the slog to get to Asian Addonis. What a great trail that is. So many people having a good time there today. Big props to the builders!

Tree down at the top of HSL. About 12" diameter needs a small saw, too big to drag. Look out, you come up on it quick, especially in the dark!

Was up Saturday shuttled boogie man for a few laps, awesome conditions, stoked on some of the work that's going in up there! Too bad the rain has returned..

Was out yesterday on the lower trails after the rain ended. Very little water, despite the earlier ran. Overall conditions were nice, especially since, I hear they don't allow "older women" from Mtn Hwy area on Seymour.

Just back from Seymour, there is a tree down on Bridle near the golf course. Could probably just take it out with a hand saw but didn't have one on me.

Rode Ned's for the first time in a couple of years, I forgot how much fun that trail is on a small bike.

Just noticed on the map that Asian Adonis crosses C-Buster and heads out to the Baden Powell… Interesting.

Ride, don't slide.

I am guessing the idea is to connect all the way over to the 2nd half of Forever After?

Nope. The trail exits on Baden Powell. Metro Vancouver does not wish to have any more connections onto their trails so while this would be an awesome connection it cannot be built at this time. They're dealing with enough issues right now.

Great trail. Thanks for all the hard work, looking forward to checking out the end of the trail connecting to the BP.
