Me: How do you feel about this new section of trail in comparison to the old section of trail?
Hikers: That was the old one? (pointing to old trail)
Me: Yes, we covered it up.
Hikers: I came last year, this is awesome, it’s amazing. How long have you guys been working on it?
Me: About three days - since Tuesday.
Hikers: How far up are you, like how much are you doing?
Me: We did this section (pointing to the section that we did) and then some other work.
Hikers: It’s great - how much traffic does this trail get?
Me: A lot of horses mainly, I’ve only seen a couple of hikers.
