Shrewsbury Trails January 22, 2012

Dad and I went out packing and opening the two trails that come into the Stone House. We cut out some down trees. The trails are rideable but not what we would like to see. We did see several riders out. Any hills that are steep are getting chewed up. Hope we don’t loose too much on Monday and Tuesday with the warm temps and rain. If any one knows of trees down or a dangerous area let us know. Ride Safely and Ride Right. read more

January 9, 2012 trail report

I did not think that it would be so far into the season with no rideable snow, but that is the case. There is a possible storm coming up the coast this week! We will have to wait and see. We did 240+ hours of equipment usage on the trails to repair the storm damage and repaired 7 bridges, one of them twice! I talked about it in the next issue of the VAST News. We have two areas that ar not passable this year. Trail 407  from RD 16 to RD651 has 2 bridges gone and trail#4 from RD67 [the black swamp road – ccc road intersection] to WR80 [ccc road – route 100 intersection] is closed because of a MAJOR WASHOUT. Do not try to travel in these closed areas, your life may depend on it! If we get some rideable snow I will post it. Our club meetings are the second tuesday of every month at 7:00 at the South Station on Main Street in Rutland . Every one is welcome and encourged to attend. Ride Safely and Ride Right! read more
