2017 Water, Water everywhere

The Trail's early years were in a drought but in 2017 that all changed. There was water everywhere and it took a toll on the trail. 

East of Edwardville a culvert completely washed out

Flooing across the trail north of the Beaver River Trestle

Half a mile east of Roberge Road water washed across the trail all summer

It was kind of scary going through the water at times

Three feet of water covered the trail in sports

Along the river from Lindbergh to Heinsburg there were more issues

Even where culverts were far down under the trail safety problems could still occur

Even some staging areas were inaccessible
