So true, and I used to think I helped out here and there and knew what work went into trails. Well I was in for a rude awakening when I started the clubhouse...hell some of the work was done for me and it was still a shock. The small details, the big stuff, chopping roots, drainage, how big to make things...trails are a constantly evolving art and its part of what makes them so interesting and fun, no one knows everything. And us trail diggers/builders share a common bond of knowing what its like. Getting too phyolosophical here but just add another reason to the list of why trails are the best.
Also these look pretty sweet (pic from the article).
And speaking of trails, from the sound of it Hurricane Irene might be making landfall in Southern New England as a catagory 1 or 2 storm so better batten down the hatches, I plan on putting a lot of big rocks on tarps.
