A large tree has fallen across the SST, it's a chainsaw kinda job.

What's the protocol on that?  I sent a message to the trails at swampclub dot org, but they have not written back.

Should we have knocked on the ranger's door?

Jennifer,

The person who lives in the house is not a Ranger and I don't think has anything to do with maintaining the trails. The protocol would be to Email Garry Trails, the SWAMP yahoo group, or you can also join the Boyette Bike Patrol Yahoo group http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/Boyette_BikePatrol/ and someone will make sure they take care of the issues ASAP. Unlike a County or state park, the Preserve does not have Rangers that will doe things like that.

MODERATOR EDIT: The protocol is to send email to trails at swampclub dot org just as Jennifer did.

Got the message.  Paul, the guy who lives on property is a ranger in training, but not likely to get called out to cut a tree unless it is blocking the 2 track impeding EMS from accessing the property.  As soon as someone gets time to head down there it will be cut out.  Meanwhile - bunny hop, cyclocross practice, or limbo.
 ;D

I'm sooo confused.
 
When we do trail work at the Wilderness Park, I thought we had to let the ranger use the chain saw.  Did I just imagine that?

At WP, rangers are the only ones allowed to use power tools, at Boyette, select individuals are allowed to.

I'd like to see the KiltedRanger with his  50 Cal.chainsaw machine gun take that tree out.
That would be cool.

Each park has it's own rules.
