Polishing the Gas Cap Trail

Horse riders could not get over David's ramp. I cut a gap in the downed tree above the ramp so equestrians can go up and around without tearing up the trail. Horse riders were damaging the trail by going around under the tree and cutting up to the trail.
Exposed roots on steep corner were getting damaged by trail users.

I covered roots with soil to help protect them from getting torn up. This was not done to make the trail easier to ride. Heavy breaking is already cutting into soil and I may place an obstacle up hill of this corner to slow riders down.
