Brant Wobig has reached out to me about the possibility of our club adopting an additional trail. He said that Kingston Peak Rd has become available to adopt. And he wants to give us first option on it.

Here's his email:
Hey Travis,
Does your club have an interest in taking on another adoption? I have one that just became available. I immediately thought of you guys since you frequently have a good showing of volunteers and a very active club. The road is the Kingston Pk Road(353 on your MVUM) It is a seasonally open road generally July 15ththrough Oct. 31st. Not a lot of issues with it but generally a very fun road to trek on. There are gates at either end that frequently require some repairs or signs. Obviously, the typical carsonite sign install and refurbish. Not much for trash since it is only open for a few months(and mostly above timberline) Let me know if you guys are interested. It would be a separate adoption form and could be a separate group leader from your club if you so choose. If you guys are not interested. No problem at all. I have several other clubs that will take it, just thought I would ask you guys first.
Thanks.
Keep in touch.
Brant

I think this is a great opportunity for our club to step up and show the FS that we're very serious about helping to keep our trails open.

This will obviously need to be voted on. Unfortunately I will not be at the meeting this month.
I'll reach out to Squishy! And see if he will bring this up at the meeting for me.

Thoughts?

So, was this discussed last night at the meeting? What is the current consensus?

It was mentioned and that we should think about it so we can decide at the next meeting.

What sort of projects are slated for the trail for the next few years? When I was up there this summer, it seemed like the trail is getting very wide in a few areas.

It seems like mostly keeping signs up to date and cleaning up trash.
I don't think there are any large projects slated for this trail.

I have no concept of the pros/cons of taking on this trail but I like the trail and want to keep it open so I guess that makes me for taking it on?

I would love it if the club took this on. Having an easier trail for some of our members with more stock trucks would be great. I would love to help with this trail as much as possible.

I think we should take it on. The entire area around it has many easier trails for inexperienced drivers to get some. Also for that cool summer getaway or overnighter.
