Sand. Lot's of it.

The fast down hill in section 2 has a small sink hole after one of the drop offs. If you don't have some speed, you will stick your front wheel and end up having a bad day.

The steep short climb on section 2 is washout completely.

The entrance to section three has two camel humps about 20 feet in.

Tree down on long climb on section 3. I tried to move it but when I stopped deer flies attacked me. I ended up doing a power climb at sprint speed to out run them.

Technically it is not a sinkhole

There is a tree down just after the rooty climb in section 2. It's not in a fast section of trail....but you'll get to practice your cyclocross skills. The rest of the trail is in super shape.

Yeah I didn't know what to call it. I ride there at least twice a week and it wasn't nearly as bad as it is now. Still no biggie if you have speed, which you should at that point.

I like the long climb in section two. All the expose tree roots make that hill a challenge.

Sandy in spots but still very fast. :)


Thanks to the *beep* pansies that are creating bypasses at every other turn or obstacle. :evil: MAN UP or stay on the road. :roll:

Gotta agree with you, i'm amazed at the number of new 'turns' that have appeared over the last 4-6 weeks out on the trail!!! :|

A good old fashioned *beep* contest - kinda makes me nostalgic for the politics forum.

Rode the trail this evening. I thought it was great. Probably slightly more sand than usual for this time of year but great overall.
