Good point on Jeffco Open Space, let them get the crane and oversized chain saw.
This tree is beyond a few guys with a chainsaw and a six pack.
Not speaking for Jeffco or Trail builders, but the original plan was for the temporary bridges to be gone before run off started. Not looking like they made enough progress, still see need for large equipment on southside of creek.
No one asked for my opinion, BUT, I would prefer they left them in place and finished the trail.
I would give up boating a short section of river with no real rapids for one season, to get the trail done.
Just think of the shuttle, viewing and scouting possibilities the trail opens up when completed!
