TRAIL CLEAN-UP AT PHILPOTT LAKE

May 18, 2013

Work day on the Salthouse Branch to Twin Ridge (SHB-TR) phase of trail development at Philpott Lake. We've had good success so far, roughing in about a mile of new trail. This extended the existing trail at Salthouse Branch to a total of 1.2 miles so far. We've gotten good feedback from our local bike club partners about design and routing. We've tried to incorporate that as much as feasible, given terrain and property boundary constraints.
