Western: Other trails

For posting trail-specific conditions and problems

Yeah, I "found" that limb on the backside of atwater as well, but "luckily" I had just done an OTB Superman about 100 yards before that and was just creeping along, trying to finish the ride. But I DID finish, bloody and everything.
I'm alright..... just let me lay here for a little while.

Thanks for the info. I rode Pigeon Creek yesterday and I was wondering if someone patrols the park cause I saw a lot of horse crap on the hiking and MT. biking trails only.

How is Pigeon Creek besides the horse crap, I haven't made it there yet, but would like to try it. I'm not expecting a lot, just looking for another local(ish) option.

It's a pretty easy course. I rode the longest loops and it had a couple of really nice little downhills. Very well marked that is why it kinda *beep* me off with the horses. The trail is fun and I found that I could still get a good workout if I stayed on my big chain ring.

Made it out to Pigeon Creek today, nice short, well maintained trail, there are a couple sections that are shared with horses that are very rough. Somehow horse crap got on some of the hike/bike only trails? I'm speculating that the squirrels moved it there.

It's gone now. I was all psyched up and ready to go off of that 6" drop into the sand and then try to hop the limb, but it looks as though someone has broken it off and dragged it off the path.
I'm alright..... just let me lay here for a little while.

Rode Al Sabo today and it is pretty good condition. Still some small patches of snow but not too bad. It is definatly rideable.

ASGA

Postby duotone » April 23rd, 2008, 9:48 pm

Went to ASGA for the first time and I'm not sure I went to the correct place.

I rode the trail that goes right on the water's edge, like, if you went a few inches the wrong way you're going down, and wet!

Where's the MTB trail there? I was think'n of going to the trail day this weekend.
It's not a bike, it's a message.

I'd rather ride my bike than operate it.

This is not a business, it's a hobby out of control
