Gary Hanna, a District Ranger with the Forest Service is organizing some trail repair work at Hawes. See the message posted on MTBR below:
Back to the Hawes Trail system. Thanks for all your responses. It appears that most of you agree, trails that are eroding (and becoming rutted) require fixing. Trails that are technical, just because they are, should remain that way.
I propose we meet and ride! As we’re riding, flag areas that we agree need work. Then meet again, with a PLAN to work.
Meet and ride: Saturday, December 27th - 9:00 a.m.
Trail Work Day: Saturday, January 3rd - 9:00 a.m.
Trail Work Day: Saturday, February 7th - 9:00 a.m.
Location: Meet at trailhead on Bush Highway, just North of Central Arizona Project canal bridge.
In case of rain / freezing temperatures, “Meet and Ride” will be rescheduled. I will post in this forum before 8:00 a.m. if cancelled.
