Franklin Falls Trail Day Recap

A lean but mean crew completed two reroutes this morning.  As planned we added a short new section of trail to Stump Trail right before the awkward left hand hairpin turn close to the bottom of the trail.

We built a small berm to bring you back up slope ever so slightly followed by a short steep downhill into a flat section with a few fun little features.  We built an up-and-over feature with an existing stump and a blow down that we ripped in half.  The new section ends with a fun little knoll into a little berm and then back onto the original trail.

The second reroute was a short little section of Bee Trail.  We diverted around the short little steep climb that has turned into a blown out rooty mess and cut across the slope a bit with a more sustainable bench cut.



We wrapped up a bit after noon and proceeded to eat many grilled sausages.  We'll be looking to keep this momentum going at Page Hill in two weeks time.
