June 8, 2012
About half of this trail is gone (as of 01 June 2012). I found that out the hard way when I rode over to it the other day and saw it was being clear cut by loggers. I live in the new Barracks less than half a mile from the trail head, so naturally they are my stomping grounds. I'm not sure why they are cutting down all of the trees, but the machines they are using to do it seem to be following the singletrack's every turn. After my failed attempt to ride the area I returned to gather my trail maintenance tools I leave out there. The trails in many of my favorite areas have been compacted beneath the 5 ft tall tires (not even you 29er riders can match them) of the hellish machines they are using to strip this once tranquil area. It is a shame... There are still some areas of the trails you can ride, so feel free to go there and explore. I just wanted to make sure everybody was informed that these trails aren't what they once were.
Under the high tension lines near the South-Post PX. There is much more sand there, but no wrecking crews...
