Just got back from a night time trail ride.
I get to the trail head, it's on college property, I notice that the rocks that were placed there to act as a block to keep the 4x4's out of there, were pushed to the side. Continued on out of curiosity, go and notice one mistake the college did, they used a bull dover to flatten out the terrain, which was done with a shovel last time and just to make a small line. Not far after that, error 2 came along, they took dirt out of the area and put it on the trail, fell because of a patch, clear it off, see a scraped up root broken. Then comes error #3 along the first few miles it runs along a river bank, the trail was widened, which wasn't needed, they widened the trail so close to the river it is not safe to ride on. Thanks New England College for not looking for people or a group who know how to build trails, you yet destroyed another trail. Oh well, time to find another trail.
