I mentioned this previously but I've literally been riding Tree Farm for almost 10 years now and I've cleared both piles probably 95% of the time, and the first pile maybe 100% of the time. Now the first one is still 95-100% but the second one is like maybe 10%. I always spin out on the second one but haven't stopped to really examine it for deterioration or something that would be causing it. Since I've only gotten faster and stronger everywhere else it seems hard to believe I've just gotten worse at clearing THIS ONE log pile lol

You're getting old. Time for an E-Bike. :D

The log pile is made of dirt and logs. It cannot change, so it must be you. I suggest squats and lunges, and don't forget your core!


If we get a good turnout on our trail day, we'd like to send a crew to repair and refresh log piles. Several need help.

We definitely have plans on sprucing up that log pile and a few others on our upcoming trail day!
