The Frankenstein is “rideable” if you can get across the pond, like shown on the picture. Emphasis is on: CROSSING the pond, and NOT just riding to it and them making a shortcut to the exit of the trail. Shortcutting is one of the worst offences; it should NEVER be done, regardless of what excuse the perpetrator might give him/her self.
To solve the Spring time flooding at this spot, we are looking into building a crib wall with Gabions (rectangular wire mesh baskets filled with rocks). Please help us find a donor that would be willing to donate enough material for building a 50′ long, 2′ high wall.
