We are in the process of replacing this old worn out site with another more updated site. Hope to have something up in the near future. Sorry for the lack of attention this site has had.
The Plan has been suspended for now and is on hold until further notice.
MERA MOTORIZED TRAIL WORK DAY
June 1 is our annual MERA work day, 8am till 2 pm. Meet at the MERA Foxhill parking lot. Sean is wanting to build an ATV trail down below the campground. Rob and I are going to reroute some singletrack around the Falcon DMZ area. I think the jeeps are just going to do some cleanup and brushing.
I haven’t even tried to get to Breshears yet this year. The snotel still shows about 2 feet at Moss Springs. Might be a little later than usual getting things opened up this year.
We are still planning on replacing the bridge on Bell Creek trail this summer. Timing will depend on when the water level in the creek drops enough to do the work. The F.S. fell and barked the stringers last fall and they are laying near the creek. We will have to bring the other materials up there when it is closer to when we build. I hope to have at least a couple of weeks notice so people can plan to help out.
Group rides were kind of a bust last year. I don’t know if we will try again this year or not. That will come up for discussion at the meeting.
We had our first Y.S.E.P. evaluation on May 25. Had 12 kids go through it. We will schedule the next for late June.
We need to keep better track of our volunteer hours. This applies to both MERA and Forest Service lands. Anytime you do any trail or road clearing on the F.S., keep track of the time you spent and the road/trail number. This all counts toward club volunteer hours, and has the added benefit of letting the F.S. know what roads are being used, giving them more reason to keep them open. You can report them to me at any time. Contact info is below, in box on the left.
I will try to post works days on here and on facebook, if I know a couple of days in advance what my plans are.
The county has created a website for MERA. It can be found at

We put some more blocks in 327 near Haywire Creek. Should take care of the worst of the mud but could still go a little higher.
