One day in 2016 six volunteers cleaned up the lower 7 miles of the Taylor Creek Trail.  Two chainsaws, two gas powered hedge trimmers, and multiple hand tools were used throughout the day.

That day, a clogged culvert was opened back up.  The clogged culvert had resulted in severe erosion causing a deep rut in the trail.  The trail tread was restored and is now a really fun downhill biking section

This Rootwad fell into and completely obstructed the Grayback Mountain Trail.  On an afternoon ride, two SOTA volunteers turned this disaster into a piece of trail art

More than 50 trees have been cleared from the Grayback Mountain Trail in the past 3 years.  Significant portions of the trail have been raked as well
  
The winter of 2016-2017 brought down more trees on the Taylor Creek and Secret Way trails.  Those trees were removed by SOTA.  Portions of the trails were also raked

These downed trees on the Taylor Creek trail removed 11/18/17 by SOTA. Mountain bikers no longer have to dismount
  
The last dip in the Bridges trail at Cathedral Hills trails was smoothed out with a small prefabricated bridge.  The trail flows much better now
