Obstructions have been reported on the Ridge Trail, while Ski & Shoe has not been visited. A new sign was placed on the entry sign late last month. The Backcountry Horsemen placed a new horse gate on the new entrance more gradual entrance to Jeanette’s Jaunt.
Summer activities the board was able to come up with, based on the ideas that we received in response to the requests made at the march meeting and the message sent out about canceling the April meeting. Since we were not sure how COVID-19 was going to influence things, the board decided to start the summer by trying to include activities that would allow folks to maintain social distancing and not require traveling to far from CDA. See PNC Summer Schedule on Home page for details we didn't schedule anything for May, and have only scheduled one activity each during the months of June and July.
The activities that are scheduled for August, September and October should also be considered tentative just in case things should change with regard to COVID-19, weather, forest fire smoke, or folks comfort level about participating. So as the scheduled activities get closer, the activity leaders will no doubt be sending out reminders and other details about their activity. Or if necessary, they would also let folks know if the activity has to be canceled for some reason.
PS - Since there is a chance that some of the activities scheduled for August, Sept or October might need to be canceled for some reason or the other. If any of you have an idea for something that you would really like to do, and offer up as an alternative to a canceled activity, I would encourage you to share the idea with the activity leader who has to cancel theirs.
