2nd 8-Track Work Party Completes Upper Re-Route!

November 29th, 2008. 3 years ago, a huge windstorm destroyed upper portions of 8-track. The Bisset/Mudry Team repaired the trail and got it open. This summer around the end of June 2008, the logging began and destroyed everybody's favorite trail. You can ask allot of bikers- they will all point to 8-track as their favorite Post Canyon experience. 

Today, Dave Bisset and Jim Mudry again lead the charge to restore the upper section by re-routing a good mile of trail today. 14 total volunteers wasted very little time and created buffed out single-track that winds down to a old jeep road- and has a few more cranks now. Its going to be a very "North Shore" inspired run when complete. 
Follow the signs instructions and you will find the work party. Little orange flags lead the way.....
Tonic Fabrication Owner Landon Holt got busy on the re-route. 
Dakine's Chico Bukanvosky walking out after serious contribution to the re-route. Co-captain Jim Mudry cuts a real nice section. 
8-track is looking buff. WSFR's Raul made it out to work and contributed his extensive knowledge of the perfect "Chalupa". 
Trail Captain Dave Bisset giving the trail his personal touch...........
Suberb work fellas.....BRAVO! 

Dave doing a final sweep while Jim says "Where's my bike! This trail is ride-able!" 

8-track entry is still closed to the public. Please do not attempt to ride this until Dave and Jim 'officially' re-open 8-Track. There's still lots of blown down debris and some features are in need of repair, in another words- RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK! 

Please donate to the GFRA! email to make a contribution in the form of materials or greenbacks.

  1. I can't tell you how glad I am to hear that you guys have created a new 8-track! I come out from Portland to ride from time to time, and I was heart-broken (ok, frickin' pissed!) when I came up last summer to find 8-track completely ravaged. You guys are killer, and I am going to throw a few dollars your way (and start to think about vollunteering!).
