Good work there, Alex. This area is showing some signs of erosion again, especially just before the bridge. I want to suggest what I've seen at a mtb park in FL, which is that they build a rock bed the lenght of the trail and drop cement bags on top. The cement cures and forms a path over which to ride that resists erosion very well. Of course this might be too disruptive to the natural erosive tendencies...just a suggestion...I would help out.

A rock turnpike would be fantastic, but we dont have many rocks at Six Mile.

I'm pretty sure we rode through that yesterday, I think there was someone actually working on it yesterday too. Thanks for putting in the time Alex. For whoever was working on this yesterday we would of stopped and gave you a hand but my feet were soaked and freezing so It was all about getting back to the car at that point.

thanks guys, lets consider this project as a proof of concept :)

if it lasts for a month, we can meet all together and build a bigger "dam" and maybe some drainage.

I'm not sure about the spot before the concrete bridge because it has to resist huge pressure when high water overflows the bridge... a lot of rocks and cement blocks can be found in water on the right side...

JDog,

should we try to fix the spot just before the bridge? we have enough rocks there... with cement it might last

I think cement would just be ugly. I envision a bridge or skinny there from where the palets are to the culvert. If you only made it one foot wide, it wouldn't be much wood. That being said, I don't have much time to help but this could be done at a small TM seesion on the weekend...

just like jay said before, you cant build anything here. sometimes when it floods the area, IT ACTUALLY FLOODS TO THE ROAD. i couldnt imagine how a bridge could hold up to that. i heard, one time, long ago, there was a bridge. until now, a tunnel/slingshot is our only bet.

we're talking about the concrete bridge area, not the blue trail crossing right?

a good boardwalk to replace those shitty planks of wood, that oddly enough don't get swept away, could be cool.
