If anyone is planning on going to Wawayanda anytime soon you may want to reconsider. It was hit real hard with an ice storm and pretty much all the trails have alot of tree limbs down and hanging branches. The park gates are locked until they can clear the main entry road.

We are planning on doing trail cleanup there next weekend (weather permitting) to clear some of the downed trees. Until that happens the majority of the park is not rideable.

Holy wow indeed. That's totally insane.

Definitely post up the cleanup sessions.

WOW! Let me know when the cleanup is scheduled so I can ride past you and not offer to help ;)

That explains a lot. I was there at 8:40 waiting for the gate to open and gave up.

Wound up hitting Jungle Habitat instead and running into Milk from Town Cycle & a bunch of folks doing trail maintenance.

Yah, too bad I didn't see the post yesterday. Rob went to waway this morning, but I knew it would be icy and a tree mess, like lots of Vernon. He took lots of pics for me though since I can't ride. He said "it's a war zone."

Tim and I went trail running in Harriman yesterday and saw a similar sight. Every tree on the top of one mountain had the "ice forest" look. We stopped and just kinda stood there speechless. Tim said something to the effect of "I'm looking for a unicorn."

I just got my power back around 4 yesterday afternoon. I would have shot the damn unicorn after listening to generators for 3 days! Going to try and hit the park this afternoon to see whats down. All the ice melted last night.

We still have no power, I borrowed a generator & have been running on that for the past few days, i have extension cords all over the place right now.

It's almost 60 degrees out today and my bikes are locked in the garage, I have an electric garage door & no other way into the garage.

We just got power about 45 minutes ago, it's so nice to rejoin the 21st century...

The house isn't wired for a generator so I had to run extensions cords in from the generator to run eveything.

Thank God it's over, it really starts to become a pain to the a$$ after a while.

Ice Melted and....

here is what we are left with. These pictures were taken on the wingdam area and little bear which is the trail that runs along the lake that the race course ended on last year. I would suspect much of the park is in the same condition. As you look around the woods you see the tree tops just sheared off. The park will not be rideable until we get it cleared.
