My wife wants to know if I'll ever move up from 2 strokes.

As of last Sunday, there were still two whoppers (12" - 18" diameter, approx.) and two smaller rotten ones down on the whoop-de-doos-through-the-pine-needled-woods section between Hodge Pond Road and Kinnie Road.
This is the trail that comes down a hill and out across a wooden bridge and into a small parking area where you sometime see people fishing off the wooden bridge.

The first biggie is about half way down this trail, at the intersection where you need to hang a right-hand turn.
The second big one is about 500 feet further down the trail.
The two smaller rotten ones are closer to the end of the trail and near the hill leading to the wooden bridge.

As of last Sunday you could get around these trees if needed.

The trees are down on what I would call the second to last section of the south loop. The last section, at least in my mind and the akarob .gpx file I use to ride the loop, ends on Hodge Pond Road just off of Route 49.

So the second to last section ends as you cross that man made bridge after coming down a hill. You then go through a dirt are where cars are often parked, take a right on a hardball road, go about 100yds and turn right to take the last section.

I dont know if that makes sense at all, and I for the life of me can never remember where that section starts... so if I was going to get the trees I would head up 49 and ride the last two sections backwards. Or if you can figure out what that hardball road is just after that man made bridge then go straight there and just ride the second to last section backwards. All three trees are in the final bit of that section. So going backwards you would cross the bridge, the go up on the side of the hill on that big well established go around to avoid all the mud holes, the first tree is just after that, and the next two are within a half mile.

Hope that helped. When do you plan on doing this? Like I said earlier.. thurs or friday next week I could help out.. but before that I am booked up,.

edit: yeah what he said one post up :)

the section that had HUGE tree across stone wall was off Legend Wood Road, to get there take 49 to Johnson road (it's only about 100 yards long) take a right on Legend Wood, less than a mile it turns to dirt, follow that for a bit and take right at the fork. You will find several trees, couple small ones first, than a huge Pine(?)

Should have used the big saw and brought some more gas. Got everything but the first tree as you come from hodge pond. Ran out of gas halfway through the second cut.







The last one is still across the trail. My helper and me need a hand to push it out of the way. Maybe we should make it a log pile like in enduro cross.
