Haven't rode this trail in a couple of years , what kind of shape is it in now? Is any of the older south loop still open?

There are two trees down on it right now, one you can easily hop and one with several limbs you will have to go around. Not hard. A third low hanging limb you can duck under. I'm working on getting a chainsaw out there but other than that it is in good shape. The new section to the north is getting ridden in very well.
The trail starts at the kiosk on 4 Mile Rd and goes north from there, same as 2 years ago plus some more. It is well arrowed and ribboned at this time and easy to find your way around.
Legend has it that a few years ago there was trail open south of 4 Mile but that was before my time and I know nothing about it.
If you like technical riding and a good workout, give it a shot.

Robinette's is underwater!! I was flying down the first hill this afternoon (right by eastbeltline) and about 100 yards later I was stopped by a lake of water. The water was over a foot deep. I had to turn around and go home.

Yes, but I've not heard of any enforcement in a long time.

You're a guest on someone's property. That should be enough, so pay the money and quit being a moron!!

if i may quote the great movie Stripe's "lighten up, francis" with the moron comments.

i know i was kidding and i'm sure two wheeled was too. i've always paid whenever i've ridden there, i only ride it when it's really crappy out though and i'd feel guilty for riding any of the trails i've worked on and that are free. if they are charging me to ride, then i'm riding it whenever i feel like getting a ride in and don't care what i do to the trail. so go ahead and flame away at that one too.

The dude was joking. Check the operator's manual on your flamethrower. You'll notice that it comes with a safety, please use it to ensure pre-mature firing is avoided in the future.

You think being an ass demonstrates someone else's intelligence?

i apparently don't get it either so obviously your intellect is far superior to mine too, you jump in, throw some insults, throw a couple more, and then do some belittling.

cheers to you smart guy! sleep well at night with your biting commentary, hopefully knowing your that much better than everyone gives your life meaning!!!
