The Cranberry and Blue Bear trails have been graded. For some interesting pics see our Facebook page. We apologize for the rough trails last weekend. There where some tractor issues coupled with we where doing brushing. We are limited in resources due to its the same people doing the work.
We will be continuing our brushing of the trails the next two weeks. This entails a tractor and a brushing machine that throws cut branches and twigs as we work. There will be some of this on the trail until we follow up by hand and throw it off the trail. Feel free to stop and help if you come across areas needing to be cleared. Please use caution
