Tree Down Locations (lat, long)
« Reply #1 on: April 19, 2007, 06:20:24 PM »
Rode Boyette today and found some down trees.  Looks like some of the trails have had some tree removal since the last storm (thanks whoever did that).  But there is still much debris and downed branches on the trails so be careful.  I almost put my eye out today  :o

Golf Cart
8-10" tree across the trail at 27 47.118' N , 082 12.265 W
This tree will be no big deal for most rider as it is right on the ground and can be cleared with good technique.  It may pose a problem for less skilled riders as its location is in an area where riders can gain a bit of speed.  It is on a slight downhill and may "surprise" riders who are not paying attention.

Abyss
Large tree at the entrance to the wooden bridge at 27 47.137' N , 082 11.533' W
This one is blocking the trail and requires one to lift their bike over the downed tree.

SouthWest
Large tree across trail at 27 46.439' N , 082 13.010' W
This is a large tree across the trail that requires the rider to dismount and walk under the downed tree.  IMO this is the most dangerous down tree I encountered today.
