With snow rapidly melting at higher elevations and recent rain this spring, you may encounter standing water or puddles on the trail. As refreshing as it is to run or bike through a puddle on a warm day, these puddles contribute to trail damage and erosion—both of which require more trail maintenance in the long term.
If you encounter a puddle on the trail, we welcome to you to give us a hand by opening up small drainage along your way. How do you do this, you ask? Watch the video below and let one of our trail building crews show you how! All you need is a large stick and a few minutes of your time.
