Hey all, at Boyette - Sidewinder, SWAMP Thing, Ridgeline and Garry's Loop are all closed until repairs can done.
Want to ride it? Help us fix it so that it is rideable. We really need the rain, but we have also gotten so much that it has affected the trail conditions in the more clay type areas. People are pulling down the blockades we have put up to keep traffic off, so that just means it will take longer to make the trails right. It also means what was once narrow fun singletrack is now a sloshy, wide, rutted mess.
Can't make the workday?
Part of helping fix these types of trails is to not ride them when they are at their worst. This also goes for Bridges and Moonscape at Alafia; Indian and Gator Bait at Morris Bridge, and the hard options at Croom.
Nothing wrong with telling people not to poach our closed more sensitive trails. If they don't know what it means when logs and debris are blocking a trail they should be told.
Right now a yellow rope with a CLOSED sign is up at the entrance to Sidewinder. Hopefully that makes more sense than physically blocking the entrance with debris.
