We’ve added another stretch of single track to spectacular Mesa Top Trail on top of Grand Mesa, pushing the total length of the single track past 3 mile mark. Below is the event report by our crew leader:
Thanks to everyone for the amazing effort today. Very sketchy start with rain, snow, fog, wind and …did I mention SNOW. After an exciting 4×4 shuttle into the worksite, all six of us (Nancy Hill, Mike Everett, Denis Grisak, Barney Barnett, Kris Cox, myself) got to work. The longer we worked the better the weather cooperated. Even though the ground was very wet, the trail building went really well. Something you would not get away with here in the valley. The view from this portion of the trail is usually spectacular but the clouds settled in below us and we could only get glimpses of the nearby reservoirs but nothing further. Still amazing!
REI had a great HOT Mexican style meal waiting for us on our return to the Mesa Top trail head and the sun stayed out for the most part.
Big thanks to Kris Cox for hauling the COPMOBA trailer up there and to Amy for getting the all important refreshments for me before I left.
Trail needs ridden!
The fall colors should be out the next two weekends so get up there and ride.
This is the GPS track for Mesa Top Trail as of September 18, 2011.
