2009 Jim Schmid co-leads Munson Mtn Bike Trail assessment meeting and ride – Tallahassee, FL

On Sept 12, 2009 I hosted a meeting and trail ride on the Munson Trail in the Apalachacola National Forest just south of Tallahassee, FL. I was the Trails Manager for the National Forests in Florida and we wanted to upgrade the Munson Trail. This was and is a very popular trail for mtn bikers. It is a very sandy trail with lots of washouts and we wanted to make it a better riding experience. We hired Valerie Naylor with Trail Dynamics to help us with the assessment. Tom Sauret with SORBA/IMBA and Chuck Goodheart with the City of Tallahassee Parks joined us for the day. Valerie presented us a written assessment Nov 2009.

John Kalin was kind enough to allow me to post some of his photos of the assessment workday. To view all his photos visit www.tallahasseetrails.com/Trail-Build/Munson-Hills-Area/Munson-Assessment-September-09. My website usually has lots of photos of others. Great to see John took so many of me that I can share.
