This trips stats are:
22 4WD's
11 ATV's
4 Motorcycles
3 Hikers
3 Stops for litter
2 Vehicles off designated roads

I'll start with the two vehicles off designated roads: two motorcycles that went around us as we were driving along. I'm not going to call them Richards for driving around us. As responsible users, we need to keep in mind that motorcycles need to keep some speed to negotiate the terrain. If I were on a cycle and came up behind a group of slow moving vehicles that were oblivious to my presence, I'd be sorely tempted to pull a Richard move and go around them. So, a little awareness and cooperation could go a long way.

The only places we found any litter to speak of was in one of the dispersed shooting areas, and the dispersed camping areas at the North end of the trail. The wire is from a project in August, that was mentioned in prior threads.

Overall, the day went quick. We started at the South end of the trail, minimal time was lost while navigating Alice, and we kept a pretty good pace.

We stopped to check the marker I put up on the last trip. Looks like a more assertive method of traffic control might be needed on this bypass.



We also experienced some confusion on the routing... Which way do we go???



We took the fun road.





This part of the trail is really confusing. We looked at one rough path that was staked off, another rough path that was not staked, and a smooth path that looks like a recently created bypass. I'll be sure to note this on the monitoring form.

We got to the area that Boulder Ranger District is working. Reclamation is in process, no more puddles.





I guess I can stop putting "Stay the Trail" posters here...

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!

From tailgate meeting to finish, the group logged twenty-five hours. After the group split up, I visited friends in Rollinsville and took Highway 72 home. A perfect finish to the day!

With the Tacoma and jeep in hand now I'd like to try and be able to join in on the next cleaning. Unfortunately I was in a rental when this all went down.
Thanks for the work guys.
