Harwood Mill -  The reroutes on Trail B are mostly complete. The trail is back to being one

way. Mike Gross is still working on signage. As the trail packs in, some trimming or trail work

from B to C.

Freedom Park – New feature on C loop is complete. May 14th Single Track Maniac – Trail A closed until 10am, Trails D and E closed all day. Early AM ride to clear trail for runners.

New Quarter – Meeting with Parks director went well. Plans to replace mile markers with carsonite signs, mark Emergency exits and TTFs. Molly would like to have raised trail removed. The park is not manned during the week and YC feels the liability is too great. Plans for removal are being made. The park can have help with removal. The county can assist with removal. If Freedom is closed, please do not ride New Quarter, it will be just as wet.
