Mineral Point Ride Report

Last weekend, Fast Eddie and I, headed out to Minerial Point to check out the trails.  I cannot believe the mild winter we have been having, and trails are really starting to open up.  We left our sad fat bikes in the shop and took are regular old mountain bikes out for the inaugural ride of the season.

We dragged, chopped and/or cut out a total of 32 trees on the Minerial Point and Mud Lake Trails.  There are about 4 left that will need a chainsaw.  We stood at the head of Lost Lake Trail, and it looked bad.  We were running out of time, and steam, and decided to leave it for someone else.  We only addressed big stuff on the trails that you couldn't ride over.  Smaller trees and bigger branches we left.

Other than the blow downs, the trail was a good condition...especially for mid February.  There were a few muddy sections the typical areas.  With the long term forecast, those should be drying out soon.

 It was a great first day on dirt.  We cleared trail, drew blood, rode bikes, had post beers, wore shorts, rallied an RC car and took in some great views.  Needless to say, I slept good that night.  Go ride.
