Before commencing building trail we need to confirm the future of the bridge crossing the Green River.
One Mile Trail signs:

Summer Trail Maintenance:
Johnny Chilton reported that the trail improvement to the Nimby Trail should be completed by the Nimby 50 race.
Lower Mackenzie is the next RFP to be issued to brush out and reroute fall line sections to make this descent easier. Chris and Stephan will walk trail to decide on scope of work.
A suggestion for the next contract is the Tour de Soo/Sea to Sky loop. ** This should be investigated further. **
