Ahern Trail Day Recap

It was a gorgeous day to build trail!

A small but efficient crew was able to refine and fully scratch in the new 'Winni Connector'.  Not sure if that name is official yet but I like it so I'm going to use it.  This reroute used an underutilized corner of the park that had a short trail called Connector that was really a here-to-there type trail that wasted tons of terrain.

Winni Connector is a .75 mile winding trail that fully uses the Southwest corner of the park taking in as many of the available natural features that we could manage.  The trail starts at the same entrance as Sunset off the lower fireroad by the lake.  It winds back and forth until ultimately popping out by Backbone and the offshoot of the fireroad that continues to Shore Dr.

There is some flow, some climbing, and some great classic Ahern rock ridge riding.  There are some additional A line / B line opportunities around some natural features but we ran out of time for today.  So I won't call it 'done' but it is certainly rideable and needs to get some wheels on it so get out there and check it out!
