Default Trail Maintenance priority list

After riding the trails last week, there are very few trails that don't need attention. Most of the work is going to be trimming back face slappers.
Here is a list of the worst offenders:
Blue loop
Treehugger
Greenbrier
Chute
Gorge
Bone
Cambodia

Games Loop
Crossword
Piggyback
Labyrinth
Centipede
Donkey Kong
Paperboy

There are a few trails that are going to need erosion management. Erosion management should be done under the supervision of an experienced trail worker. Trails needing this attention are (in no particular order):
Treehugger - the 1st downhill to the creek crossing
Greenbrier - waterbars needed top to bottom, but especially at the top
Chute - waterbars on the top half of the trail with possible reroutes necessary
Gorge - the 1st downhill
Cambodia - waterbars need to be rebuilt in section between 1st and 2nd clearing.

If you plan to go out to work on any of these areas, please post here and on Facebook so that anyone else that wishes to help can do so.

Myself and Bruce put in 3 hours on the Orange loop Sunday. Started at the beginning and worked our way from there to Piggy Back. Cleared some stuff on Horseshuz.

Bruce was not able to post what he did yesterday, so im posting for him.
(Went the back way on Games Loop. Went past where the trail hairpins by the road in the neighborhood and on up where it turns headed back into the woods toward Paperboy? More to do than I thought. Not as far as I wanted to go but had to work. 2 hours worth.)

Did a short ride myself yesterday afternoon. Did some cleaning as i went. Labyrinth, Centipede, Donkey Kong and some Paperboy.

Bruce and I went out again and did 3 hours of work. Mainly hit Paperboy walking it in reverse. Did some clearing on Donkey Kong on our way out.
I hope to make it to the meeting. Bruce is working 2nd shift so dont think he will make it.
