Yeah, bike and off-road vehicle trails are the last things on thier minds right now. Hopefully some of the locals will help to clear some stuff off and get things moving. The problem with that is, if they take the same thoughts as Louisville metro parks, they're so worried about someone getting hurt that they hardly want anyone out there. You def. can't use a chainsaw at all without going through thier safety training course and getting certified.

Before the ice storm, they closed Otter Creek Park due to money issues and the ice storm destroyed it. Even if they do open the park, it will be a huge ordeal to get all the trails opened. The local mountain bikers have been concentrating on a couple of the other local spots and even with a bunch of guys hitting a small trail, it's taking a while to get it ridable.

Sorry to get kinda off topic. It's all in relation though.

Geting a lot of the trails opened up is gonna come down to volunteers pitching in where they're allowed. I know I'm doing all I can around here for the mountain bike trails, so I'm tapped out right now.

Yeah that article talked about the safety issue, with all the limbs hanging loose in the tree tops.

Let us know if there is a local effort to go in and help clear some of the trails, I would be willing to drive down and help out. I love it down there.

I had my Spring Break trip planned to go down there for a few days but it looks like that isn't happening.

I'm still a ways off from LBL and haven't heard of anything going on down there. The only thing here local is mountain bike trails and they are needing a lot of work. Any guys down closer to LBL that can fill us in on the recovery effort there?
