The main areas worked on were drainage improvements to existing berms and armouring to a couple of key gully crossings.
We also had a visit from Ash from Nerang ( http://mtbtrailcare.com/Blog.asp ). It was great having Ash to lend a hand and share ideas. Ash also showed us how to armour creek crossings, where it's resolved the drainage issue and improved the flow of the trail.
Due to all the rain Council weren't able to truck in more rock for us. However, we made do with what we had. Couldn't have a trail build day without building something new!
New Rock Garden - This feature is located at the trail head and will alert riders to the level of difficulty of the trail and provide a genuine MTB TTF (Technical Trail Feature). I've heard the trail being described as All Mountain/Cross Country, which I think is a pretty fair description.
Rock Art - One of two gully crossings. These were the crossings Ash from Nerang worked on. The amazing thing about these crossings is how smooth they are. Lots of compacting from the rake-hoe I'd say.
Better Bermage - Ag pipe below the low point in the berm extending to the rock where it exits. (Apologies for the small text on image)
This spot was holding water. Although it looks muddy still, it's been replaced with rock armouring which should dry it out and keep it that way.
Rock Mosaic - Keeping the water and the trail flowing = Win/Win
Lantana Apocalyse - Looks bleak, but this trail build has provided access to Council to come in and remove Lantana, this will be replaced with natural vegetation soon. Click here for full panorama
Everyone's welcome - The BSMC kids and families social ride joined us for the regular BBQ.
