Signage, Part 2 and disc golf

So, what do you do when some D-bag steals the signs that two 6 foot guys put up?   You get the tallest mountain biker you know and put him on a ladder to put the signs back up.

Thanks to Buzz Taylor we got the signs back up at SWW.  You will need to look up a bit to see them, they are 9-10 feet up in the trees, but they should stay there.   Unless the same D-bag wants to come out with a ladder.

On another note, Liberty Parks is putting a disc golf course in at Stocksdale.  This will have some effect on the trails, but not too much.  They will cross the trail in 3-4 places.   Generally the line of sight should minimize any chance of getting dinged by a disc.  You will see some clearing of brush for this project.

An aptly named trail.

We are starting to apply some names to trail sections.  Note that I said trail sections.  We have opted to go with a larger number of names for shorter sections of trail to help with identifying where you are on the trails.   One reason for this is so that if a trail user notes an issue on the trail and contacts the trail managers we can be more specific.  For instance, someone could email us and say, "Hey, I was out running today and found a tree down across the trail on the Buzz Kill section."   That will allow us to narrow that down quickly to where we need to go do maintenance.   These names probably won't make it to the map, as it would make the map too busy.   The carsonite markers will remain on the map.

Named after the original trail dog at SWW, RIP.

Named after the other trail dog.   Not yet dead.
