Horse trail1

  1. 1. Why not mountain bikes?
  2. 2. Brecksville Reservation…
  3. 3. …just South of the stables on Meadows Dr.
  4. 4. The trail is nice, but a little soft in places.
  5. 5. Looking back at one point, the trail was pretty solid.
  6. 6. Green dots indicate route. Trail marker is visible on the tree.
  7. 7. A little farther along, though, it gets pretty soft…
  8. 8. …and people alter the route to avoid the mud.
  9. 9. I had to step back a bit to take in the entire expanse of the trail.
  10. 10. The yellow markers in the picture show the width… look far right
  11. 11. This is a tough spot to build a trail on… water runoff cuts right across.
  12. 12. It just doesn’t drain well. It is quite flat.
  13. 13. For reference, note this piece of wood…
  14. 14. This section really could use some reinforcement, or a seasonal closure.
  15. 15. There were several other instances of ground too soft to support a horse.
  16. 16. This sign seemed ironic considering the conditions of the man-made trail in the area.
  17. 17. Farther along there is a big hill down into the valley.
  18. 18. …pretty good use of a double switchback.
  19. 19. Past the second switchback it finds another bad spot.
  20. 20. Looking back you can see how steep the grade is.
  21. 21. This may not be the best place to build a horse trail.
  22. 22. Further down the hill is another tough spot.
  23. 23. Again, the trail widening is uncontrolled as people avoid the mud.
  24. 24. More tough spots with mud.
