'Cut there own damn trails?"
Don't go there, I made made many of those trails starting back in 1977 thru 1992 when laying out those Enduros, that was just a little before the SWAMP club ADOPTING Enduro trails.
And for many years before me, there were others laying out Enduro trails there and none of them were MTB riders.
Having said that ( It's and old rant that has been covered many times in years past) SWAMP club does 99% more trail work there than the Suncoast Enduro club.
The problem is a) MTB trails are adopted ( most of them) from Enduro trails. I don't believe many if any of SWAMP layed out trails are used by the Enduro crew. ( Not sure about this year)
B) The forestry department mandates the Enduro trails available to be used. STB don't have the option to build new routes like we did over my 15 years of trail layout for the Enduro.
Dont want to share Enduro trails, get active with the Forestry management, convince them to allow either STB or SWAMP to build new trails ( I think there are about 15 miles of shared trails today?) so that there will be no shared trails. (good luck with that!)
Trying to have the Forestry to stop allowing the Enduro will be very difficult if not impossible. FTR & STB has a very good, long time relationship with the Forestry management. (This past weekend was the 30th year of the Enduro there)
The solution seems simple, but will be far from it.
The Suncoast club will be doing a work day soon to fix some of the damage. ( But not all as 64 miles or trail repair would take a while)
I'll be in contact with the trail boss to hopefully get them working on just the shared trail sections.
For anyone interested I will post the date for the work date and get with Bob to see if we can plan a work date at the same time.
