Went down to Bird Creek yesterday for just a little bit of riding. Haven't been down there in about 2 months. I see they have closed portions of different trails and closed down entire trails in other cases. The signs say it is due to soft soil and more erosion control. The part I don't really understand is if they are doing this to help out the environment in one fashion or another why would they cut down 10-20 mature trees and push up big dirt berms at both ends of the trails? I would think the berms will cause their own erosion issues. Seems like if they were going to cut all those trees down, why not just build some sort of elevated platform with the trees over the soft spot? Kind of like the bridges they built over the creeks. As usual, I came home with more trash than I went down with. Price of gas is keeping everyone closer to town and this has probably caused some of the issues down there. Anyone got anymore info??
