After much thought and planning the new baffles have been installed at the heads of the Lime Burner and Beater Trails (previously Black and Red). These will now hopefully go someway to disuading cyclists using tagalongs and or trailers from entering the trails largely unsuited for anything other than solo Mtb's. We have used the timber supplied by the FC to install a narrow entry at the Fire Track and then another four timbers forming chicanes just in front of the split of the two trails. Beyond that just inside each of the two trails we positioned more narrow entries. An added bonus here was the opportunity to dig some drainage in behind the timbers without leaving them exposed to catching any cyclists wheels.
We still have plenty more timber so hopefully we can use them to put in more narrow entries where the Lime Burner and Beater trails cross the family orientated Shepherd trail.
Future features planned include some step ups (or down) to add to the early trail sections. Thanks go to Tom, Pete & Martin for their time and efforts during the morning.
