One of the bridges (there are a bunch of them) that crosses over a pond is beginning to be submerged - appears the beavers have been busy building up their dams for the winter.
View to Boink Point.
Carpeted single track.
If you don't like riding through mud, get off and walk around it. Riding around it only makes it wider.
I've ridden Kanata Lakes for years, before they were popular and even known about. I helped build trails there. Helped with the start of OMBA. Seen the increase of traffic on the trails. Unfortunate to see some parts of the trails widen.
Original line in yellow - the photo is deceiving - a little up over some rocks, it was tight because there was a tree there. Tree got lopped down, people started to go around the rocks to make the line . . . trail widens and gets easier. Fak me.
Pet peeve of mine is the increasing number of 'cheater lines' that have popped up in the past year or two. You'll be riding along and all of a sudden without warning you'll be on a totally different line than the original. I don't get out to KL as much as I used to, so I don't pick up on the changes in trail until I've already committed to them.
Instead of riding the original line people are riding around it. If it's too hard, get off and walk. Or go back and try it until you get it. Pisses me off to no end when I see people take it amongst themselves to open a new, easier line.
