2nd trail crew @ calvin crest

A college age group of 14 or so spent several days working around CC getting it ready for 4th-6th graders this week. I work with them Saturday building new trail. The first task was armoring a descent to the eastern creek.

We spent the rest of the day working on the trail from the top of the bluff down to the Platte River.

We finished about 1100' like above, roughed out the tread another 100', and weed wacked the remaining 500' to the river. Around 60 work hours for the day. I will be working with a group of senior adults in a couple weeks to finish the treadwork to the river.

Here is a pic of the trail cut through cedar trees the previous Saturday.

It will be interesting to see how heavily the deer use their old trail.

A lot more work needs to be done before I'd consider it rideable. Just doing a section here, a section there, some just trail corridor prep, others include tread prep. Maybe by this fall or winter, phase 1 will be completed for a loop.

Kids camps are in operation now through mid July, so the trail is not open to the general public during this time.
