Trail Work Day – March 28th

We’re planning to do a little trail cleanup Saturday morning at 9am in Port Washington. Meeting were the interurban trail crosses Hales Trail Road. We’re hoping to clear debris, leaf blow, and there are still a few areas that need some dirt work, so please dress accordingly. As always all work day participants need to […]

Winter Trail Conditions

We got a few laps in today out at PV, and it’s in great shape. The winter loop is already ridden in and lots of fun to ride. Thanks to everyone that got out there and put some tracks in the snow! In order to keep the trail rideable, we’d ask that you only ride […]

Winter Loop

  Here is the actual Strava GPS map of the winter loop.  I’ve highlighted the “reroutes” in blue.  A few of them still need better signage, but there are some signs up directing you to the re-routes and the re-routes have been brushed an cleared for the most part.  We are going to run blue and half […]

Fall Trail Work

  Tonight I started flagging the next leg of the Port trail heading North from where we left off.  Some very interesting terrain back there, should be a lot of fun.  ( Pictures don’t really do it justice) Matt got back there with a leaf blower this week too, the trail is really well defined […]

Port Washington Trail Work

We had an excellent turnout for the trail work day on Saturday.  We got about a third of a mile finished.  We need to finish armoring up a few spots and remove a few dead falls and we will have a small ride-able loop (1/3mi). The Port Trail will be made up of a number […]

Trail Condition Update

We will be running the green and blue loops as two way traffic like we did this spring. Basically enter the trail via the exit, Nic and I blocked off the inner loops of both the green and blue so it should be pretty clear. The advanced is in good shape except for a little […]

After all the storms and rain…..

Nic and I went out to the trail last Friday to check on our boardwalks and they seem to have made it through those downpours!  Not that we’re surprised…….. One tree down on the main hiking path, and that other large tree along the cap that fell last week appears to be the only real impact […]
