Road damaged in MFRP

Post by DriskellHR » Sun Apr 06, 2014 9:04 am

The last two gully washers we had did heavy damage to the MFRP access road. It is passible currently by 4x4, Its is safe to pass just requires a higher ground clearance. I will be on the phone Monday morning coordinating repairs with the county, oil company, and if need be, outside contractors.

Keep in mind this season has be exceptionally wet. Soil conditions are loose and unstable. Use your head when parking and park ONLY IN DESIGNATED AREAS!

Spoke with the correct people this week. They have equipment inbound and should have the county and RRGCC portion repaired by the end of next week (weather, of course, permitting) Should be good for 2wd vehicles for the trail day. The wheels are also turning on the parking lot gravel but nothing in stone yet..... stay tuned, as I find out more I will send it out.

Please be respectful to the workers on site. stay out of their way and tip your hat on the way by, They really appreciate the gesture.

Do you recommend avoiding the gravel hill off Shumaker Ridge on any particular days next week?

Can't really say. I don't think they will keep me in their loop when it comes to the timeline very much. Just keep a look out

Gotcha. The road coming in the other way off Holly and Tiptop is in pretty good condition, if anyone's curious.

Inside joke or serious? Is it passable in a subaru? Seems like that way would be quicker anyway vs. driving down shumaker everytime...?

No it's about 2 miles longer from the north. The road is better overall although you need a bit of clearance crossing the creek.

Not related and related at the same time...the sign next to the bridge to go to Sore Heel has an arrow and says Sore Heel Parking...making people think that is the parking lot for Sore Heel...if you want them to park at the new parking area maybe a new sign is needed...

Yeah, your right. I made that one with about 10 other signs so I did not realize dipshit I was until it was already up and I was standing back admiring my work like a jackass.....

Making another round of signs in the near future, its on my list.
"shortcut trail to soreheel > " with a "flat holler parking < " sign next to it.

Unless someone is skilled with a router and has some time. Drop me a line, I have a list!

What is the status on the Hell Creek road? Specifically the two creek crossings for the "back way" to Miller Fork.
