I have ridden Highland 3 times in the past 2 weeks. Granted, there are people in the parking lot (although I have NOT ever seen it full), but you see virtually nobody on the trail. The most I saw was on a weekend, and there were 6 other bikers (over 16.5 miles), and single hiker and a pair of trail runners. Not even close to being a problem.

That's sounds more like what I've experienced.

Can anyone shed some light on the new mountain bike trail on the west side of Bomount? Was out hiking with my dog and came across this trail which looked like a MB trail. Then within the space of 20 minutes saw 3 bikes on this new trail.

I found the start of it down near Weaver but am interested to know where it ends and if it's a connector which means 2 way traffic. Always happy to see more Trails in my backyard!

Hope is not a good strategy.

Huge trees down on Highland yesterday at 5pm. On both B and D. The one on D was gnarly, had to walk through thick brush to get around it.
