It is through hard work that the Central Cycle Club and NETRA keep this trail open. If you live in the Plainfield area you could help by joining the Central Cycle Club.Thanks for posting the pics and location of this problem.Always be concious of homes in the area. Use a quiet exhaust and stay off the throttle when in the vicinity of the public.To join NETRA go to www.netra.org, we really need you!

Good news, the trail is completely clear now. Someone chipped all the brush. Who and why is still a mystery at this point but it's nice to see.

We had a good ride, did the full loop. It was noticably drier than I'm used to. You can actually see what you are doing in the puddles, a rare treat.

The guy I rode with came up from Milford - ON THE BIKE. He didn't have any trouble getting through the mud, those dual sport tires were treating him pretty well.

Well here's the one pic I got to take.

Excellent advice! ('bout NETRA)
The Central Cycle club may have done it in prep for their T.R.

I will tell the NETRA office.

I just passed the info on to the NETRA office. The Park Ranger was trying to find the blockage and had no luck.

AKARob: Check your PM's. Thanks, Russ

I am 95% in. What time do you plan on taking off? Wife is pretty sick but she should be better by then to watch after the homestead. I want to film the entire ride. Do you know the entire loop?

Wish I could make it. I'll be "camping" and doing a little riding this weekend. Similar to the labor day party. Pics here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=502074

Man, I've been wanting to film the loop for a while. I'll definitely add a few hours to the trip but it would be so worth it.

Here's a pic of me exiting the "Green Falls water crossing". It's actually a foot lower than I've seen it earlier this year. Quite doable. have fun if you go. Maybe we can set something up for next weekend.

Rob, that water crossing looks easy this time.
I might be tied up this Sunday, if I am next weekend will be good.

Turnersville, I am only at 95% myself, I might be going on a Whalewatch Sunday with the womens, I will post up 'tween now an then. I dont know the full loop, but tween robs maps and my GPS, I think we could figure it out
Maybe Saturday?

Yea, the crossing wasn't too bad at all; however, I did manage to find a mud hole along the way that had a really deep rut and threw me off the bike and knocked the wind out of me. Good times, nothing broke, situation normal for the loop.

I'll try to keep Sunday the 27th open for a loop. I'd like to take some video of some people going through some of the more interesting sections. I'll lock it in after this weekend.

Who else wants to do the loop at a "gentleman's pace" ? Maybe become immortal in some Pachaug video history.
