Let me see if I can make it. Hopefully I can. This trail is becoming my White Whale.

Unfortunately, I'm now out. Now have friends coming into town and they're arriving right in the TM window. Next time. Good luck with continuing the build.

i feel like crap, and its raining. Bad combo -
if still on, i'll try to get there later on. Assuming the barometric pressure changes, and my head clears up.

We made some major progress today through some of the toughest sections of rocks. Rain stopped right around 9am, so all the stars were aligned. Thanks to @snashters, @gmb3, and Rangers Dave & Chris.

All the trees are cut so you can ride the parts that are finished so far. The trail will benefit from being packed down, so go for it.

I'm thinking of naming this trail "Spartacus" since the tool has been essential in the construction of this trail.

Rode/ hiked-a-bike new trail today (RocaLoca?). Noted flags were at each end so tried riding from far entrance to fish head. Not quite opened yet, needs a lot of work. If there is a trail-build session I'm definitely down for that. Trail has potential for being hardest trail in NJ. Great rock-work so far. Looking forward to tackling this!

Bumping this thread for the 9/16 trail build session. We should be able to finish the final middle section of the new trail and officially link both ends if we get enough helping hands. Let's do this!

Meeting up at 9am in the East Mountain Road lot. Thanks.

I'll be there. Spreading the word to friends of mine who ride there too - hopefully they can join and do some payback. Fun trail so far, hard as f**, but it'll get better as it wears in.
