FOTW Pro Trail Crew Kicks Off June Dropping Berms

Good news for all those Care Hills fans out there, especially the clergy of The Preacher.  On Wednesday, 6/6, the FOTW Pro Trail Crew went up Preacher and weed whacked the Vast trail and logging roads for easier climbing to the top of Preacher.  We replaced a 30” bridge that was tipping over and added a reroute to it near the bottom of Preacher above Crucible in a very consistently wet area. The new reroute flows better and keeps you dry heading into the rocky features on Crucible.

After that, the Pro Trail Crew moved up Preacher and reshaped, rebuilt, and created more smooth-turning berms from the top of Preacher to Crucible.  Much like the revamped berms of Voodoo Child that were constructed last week. Normally these berms take anywhere from 4 -8 hours to build.  The Pros did 5 in one day. Way to go trail crew! Become a member so you can access the network map (you’ll need it) and plan a big ride out here soon (conditions permitting, of course).

Thanks to those who support the FOTW through their membership, especially those who purchase our 5-pack deal or above.  That type of support allows this highly skilled crew to get out there and get that type of work done in one day.  Spread the word to donate and support the trail crew for continued high-end construction. Thanks!
