Tree down on hole in the fence exit trail 4/4/2011
« on: April 04, 2011, 12:51:08 PM »
Between the sinkhole area and the HITF exit path, maybe 500 yards from the exit.

And its much too big to bunny hop... Hike-a-bike to get over it.
I don't know who to call, and it will take a team to move.

Just letting you know!

I'll go back and throw some plywood down to make the trail more interesting in the meantime.  ;D

How big? Most of the guys here ride huge wheels that just rollover big logs ;)
If its too hard, ramp it.

Maybe 1.5 to 2ft...
I payed too much for my bike to teach that tree a lesson.

But feel free to tackle it with your manly 29'ers!
