Things are settling into the "new normal" after the logging that took place over the winter. The usual parking area is once again the primary trailhead and most trails are open for riding. You can find a current trail map and detailed information as provided by Bryan Shipman at the C.A.R.P. Facebook page . With the exception of some of the logged areas, trail conditions are excellent. The logged areas are still pretty raw, but the trail builders have been at work and their efforts show. Most of my favorites like Buddha, Ball of Nails and Merlin are unaffected.
I guess the "red flag" fire warnings aren't in force at Camp! Actually, these piles have likely been smoldering for days and an effort to clean up logging debris continues.
The boys have been hard at work restoring trails. Look for some work day announcements from C.A.R.P.
Ok, I had to show off my new bike, a Niner J.E.T. 9. As I escorted an injured rider back to his vehicle, I noticed Mat Seelinger's newly wrapped Spokes-mobile so I took the opportunity to use it as a backdrop. We've bought bikes from just about every shop in town and now Spokes has been added to the list! More on the bike after I'm fit enough to give it a good workout!
It's a good time to get back out to Camp. I've enjoyed riding at Burns Park over the winter, but Camp Robinson offers more miles and more variety. Judging by the two pages of rider sign-ins last night, I'm not the only one who feels that way. There were 3-4 groups out and about, with Wednesday being the big weekday for the venue. Head out on a Tuesday or Thursday before 6:00PM to get your Sportsman Pass if you have not done so. It's only $10.00, it's quick, it's easy and it's a good excuse to head out for a ride!
