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.
Love this pic!and your dog!

That tree's a big 'un. Your dog looks like he's standing at a bar, waiting for a drink.

A ktmtalk thread confirms no freeride for 2013.

Rode Pachaug on Sunday. The weather was perfect. Obviously, someone has done a lot of work to clear these trails of fallen timber.....thank you! I was surprised there were not more people riding on Sunday.

As Woods Rooster said, a big thanks to all on the clearing of the downed trees. We did encounter the Swamp this pass Sunday that slowed the Enduro loop ride down a little.

Yea, that's a good one to bypass next time. The regulars don't use that trail except in the driest of conditions, and there will still be water there. Good to see you went straight up the middle instead of off to the side. There's no hard bottom off to the sides.

Back when I first rode the Pachaug loop in 1988 or thereabouts, I remember that water crossing being about half that size.
