    They call this spot The Ricochet

    No. They don't. That would be stupid.

    At least there weren't 30 1/4 mile trails with different names just to get there...like, ahem, another riding destination close by...course that's all part of the fun...

    If I helped build this trail, I would just be happy that people are riding it, and that it's a topic of conversation, regardless of what I named it. Must be a fun trail, so kudos to whomever helped with it.

    I think it's called the Overlook "spot" on the Ricochet "trail".

    How about we just settle this now and call it: Super Secret Secret?

    P.S. I was up on Elden this weekend and "your" trails are a little slice of heaven!! So so nice. Ride also turned into a shroom hunt, but didn't find any without maggots.

    "our" trails (the all-inclusive "our") are in lovely condition, indeed, maggoty 'shrooms notwithstanding. likewise, i've never before seen so many pine seedlings germinate at the same time... open ground and foresty-places alike are carpeted with them. crazy.
