Ozark Off Road Cyclists and Progressive Trail Design have been volunteering
their time to re-route portions of Lake Fayetteville nature trail that have
serious erosion problems and/or are an ongoing maintenance issue. If you've been
out there lately you may have noticed that the section north of the
Environmental Study Center was completed this winter. The straight shot up the
hill through the pines has been re-routed into a series of switchbacks and the
old route has been blocked off with brush and logs. The switchbacks greatly
reduce erosion on the trail which in turn, greatly reduces maintenance. They are
continuing their efforts on other portions of the trail in the upcoming weeks.
I've attached a flyer for planned work days led by OORC and PTD if anyone is
interested in helping them out. Please pass the word onto anyone who might be
interested and/or enjoys using the trails out there.
