AFCD "improvement" or trail vandalism at Tai Lam Chung?

Oh... and breaking a helmet is way better than breaking your neck. ;)

The AFCD are waiting to consult with the IMBA trail specialists before deciding exactly where the work will be this year but it will be somewhere along Ho Pui and/or the Tai Lam Chung Reservoir sections - perhaps that nasty rocky bit pictured above? These are the most popular trails in the park (perhaps HK) and the TLC section is meant to be targeted at beginners but IMBA rate it intermediate in its current state.

Guess we'll have to wait to find out. Wasn't fixing up Ho Pui (reservoir loop) out of the question for now (this time last year) as it involved helicopter drops of huge rocks? I ass-u-me the IMBA guys are already here and scoping things out with the AFCD, otherwise it would be a bit daft to start trail building day and not have the route decided? :D Ho Pui pass itself is in better condition... though water erosion is worse where they plastered down the concrete and built stairs. Surprise, surprise.

Looks like this has been the work of the AFCD... did Tai Lam reservoir as part of a bigger ride today and there were a few "trickier" (narrow/gradient) bits in the bamboo groves have been re-sculpted. Didn't stop to take photos unfortunately. :whistle:
