The Forest Re-Opens!!

After a year of being closed due to the devastating Santiago Fire in October 2007, the Trabuco District of the Cleveland National Forest is finally open. The official opening day was November 9th. Local mountain bikers celebrated and reclaimed the route with a morning and an afternoon ride.

My wife Kristine lead the morning ride with alot of Trail Angels present. They paused for a group photo at Cooks Corner before heading off on the ride.

The morning group posted a new trail register for trail users to write in at the Luge flagpole. I put a couple pictures in the front from just days after the fire was put out showing the charred destruction of the forest.

Kristine wrote down a fitting inspirational saying from John Muir.

Here is Kristine coming down the Luge, a tight, twisty gem of a singletrack. Can you tell she’s having fun?

Then later that afternoon the big boys rode and placed a new American flag at the top of the Luge.

Here is a Warriors Society member enjoying the new and improved trail.

Re-opening the forest has made many hiker, bikers and equestrians very happy! Now if we could just get some rain!
