Good stuff so far Kerry. I can't ride MTB's right now due to a back issue that prevents me from pedaling but my right wrist still works. Just road the Coyote Cutover, or whatever it was called, on my wife's KLX140L this evening and wow, that was some techy stuff! You keep building 'em like that and you will have quite the support team behind. Nice work man.

Little bit of good news for a change...

DualSpaz and I rode some Cedro trails today...about 40 miles worth. We rode the new Coyote Split trail and the re-routed and lengthened Delbert's trail as well. These trails are amazing!! I can't thank Kerry Wood and the volunteers who helped build these trails enough! They have good flow but remained technical and challenging. The re-routes of Lower Mohagany and Poker Chip are awesome as well! Rare to see re-routes actually be better than the original trail. Great to see the trails built in a way that leads one trail to the next with minimal roads as well. All trails were very well marked with trail name and number at the beginning and end of each trail and with barriers to limit trail to ATV width trail or motorcycle width. Just wish we could see this kind of improvements on other trail systems in NM.

Just wanted to recognize and give a big thanks to Kerry and all the volunteers who put in the efforts to make these improvements. It's seems rare these days that we get to say anything positive about motorcycle trails. Great work!!

Damn, I must have ridden near you and just missed you. But then I was on a KLR, so you know.

I would be down to assist with trail work, whatever. Any new news on this?

Is the new trail looping off the Tunnel trail open? I was out of town for the last trail work weekend in October, but believe there was a bit of clean up to do yet. I was planning on going out yesterday, also, but had to meet someone in the middle of the day of course, screwed up the morning and afternoon.

I don't know about that trail yet, but I do want to check out the Tunnel Canyon/Otero side next time out! I haven't ridden that area since about 2001.

I rode the Tunnel trail earlier this fall, it is fun, but best on a weekday as it is popular with hikers and mt bikers. The new trail will make a nice loop. Haven't tried Otero yet.

Technically the new trail (yet to be named) is not officially open to motorized just yet. It still has to be published on the 2013 MVUM (the West Ridge trail will also be opened to motos on the new map). However, I'm not going to fault anyone that wants to try it just remember it's a new trail and still soft in several spots (it's also not signed yet so finding it might be a bit difficult). Also, we need to go back and do a once over with the chainsaw and clear a couple more overhanging trees - on a mtn bike it's fine but on a moto you might catch a few in the neck!

As far as volunteer days, we don't have any more scheduled for the year. However, if there's folks interested in just helping out on weekdays on occasion, we're always looking for help. For example, we've got two volunteers helping us out on Thursday to do a little work on Cajun Pine. When I get work days together for the 2013 season I'll post them up. Otherwise, if you'd like to come out on weekdays, shoot me an email (kwood@fs.fed.us) and we'll let you know when we'll be doing something...

Cheers,

Kerry Wood

I should also point out that a good portion of the improvements are a result of a Recreational Trails Program grant that we've been working on with NMOHVA. The new trail near Tunnel was not part of the work with NMOHVA officially but I believe a few members helped/volunteered with the construction.

I'm excited to keep these improvements going, and seeing folks from the motorcycle community support our efforts is great. Thanks.

Thanks for all the hard work Kerry! Wish we had some of that cooperation in the SFNF. Looks like we will lose some good singletrack there. I'll shoot you an e-mail next week about work days. I'm burning the last of my vacation days for the year so hopefully I can fit your schedule.
