With the rains this year, the trees are growing as fast as the grass. A number of folks have requested information on which trails they should trim when they ride.Here's the easy answer. Buy one of these little guys (less than $20) and stuff it in your pack. If a tree smacks you in the face, stop and trim it. If a tree catches you in the arm or leg, stop and trim it. If a tree hits you in the ass, stop and have a drink with it . . . then trim it back. Don't just prune, trim with authority to make sure you won't get smacked again (unless you like that kind of thing, sicko).
FYI - 3/4 of Horse Shoe is now cleared from face smacking trees.
