Default The Building of a Great Trail

NOTE: This trail is NOT open until next year. Please obey the closure so that we do not lose it!!

We will have a brand new trail for us to spend hours playing on next spring. The trail has been named "The Quack Attack" in honor of Mr. Randy Drake aka "Papa Duck". Randy has spent decades working to get a real Class II trail in this area and he has succeeded masterfully. In addition to Randy, we need to thank Mr. Mike McFadin of the Forest Service for working with us to make this dream come true and also thank the many volunteers who spent weekends for several months laboring to build this trail.

The work is not done, though. There are still a couple of areas that need to be armored up to make them safer and several more trees that need to be protected. We also will need to install signage.

This trail IS NOT a graded forest service road renamed as a trail. It is a true Class II 4x4 trail, requiring lockers, larger tires and driver skill. It is everything that Randy has worked so hard to get. It will be open to quads and motorcycles but it was built by 4x4 people specifically for 4x4 rigs.

Here are a bunch of pictures from over the past couple of months.
