A small but staunch crew from Growlers Gulch Racing made big progress on the South Coldwater 230A Trail on Sunday, June 26th.
The group included Brian Mahon, Dave LeMonds, Jeff Lipton, Lance Brigman, Erik Carlson, Bob Horness, Ken Noble, Ryan McMaster, Chris Laughlin, and Andy Plassmeyer.
They did considerable dirt work on the lower area, and it is now in great shape. Additional dirt work was done at the top, past the first set of equipment.
A smaller crew that included LeMonds, Lipton, Carlson and Brigman encountered snow about two to three miles in but got past that and completed brush clean-up all the way to the intersection with the Lakes Trail at Tractor Junction.
Brian will be heading back up in July to do some additional nipping.
The 230A is the only access trail on the north side of Mount St. Helens that is open to mountain bikers. Once there is a bit more snowmelt, you need to consider heading up there and seeing if you can make it to St. Helens Lake. This is spectacular terrain.
Big thanks to everyone that was involved.
