Are we not trimming aggressively enough (Gruber's especially)? How is the problem handled at PLRA, Highland, Poto, and others? Maybe these questions are moot because we simply haven't had the numbers to maintain so many miles of trail. No matter, I'm glad to see such interest and an increased focus on Gruber maintenance/improvements.

I wonder, though, if Gruber's were better maintained, would its entire length see more traffic? Or is it the style of riding, regardless of trail condition, that makes people avoid it?
I truly can't anwer the question because I'm relatively new to this area and never rode the trail in its "intended" state. I've only ridden it when I've had to fight through the brush and dismount because my bars won't fit between the trees.
