Then spent time scouting many areas to see how they are handling the weather and the impatient riders, including raking out ATV tracks/ruts made in the wet earth on Goosebumps.
Week 3 - Bill spent more time scouting many areas to see how the weather and impatient riders were affecting them incuding the Vigin Cliffs system and Church rocks Prospector.

After that he was back in Virgin for a day cleaning up after the holiday weekend traffic that left tons of "go arounds due to trails that weren''t "good to go" yet folks chose to ride anyway. He then spent a day starting on 3 Falls connector in Hurricane mostly removing rubble from low spots and switchbacks.

Week 2 - Bill continued this week cleaning up after more impatient riders on the Virgin trails (including raking out OHV tracks made in the soft dirt on lower Dead Ringer and JEM). While also spending a couple days on the Boy Scout trails at Quail Lake mostly cleaning drains and removing rubble from the tread surface.
Week 3 - This wet week was spent scouting many areas for more user damage and continuing raking out widening trails where it was dry enough to work. Again finding himself raking vehicle tracks from the trail in Virgin.
