    Bring the smallest, lightest, best rolling tires you can find for the main trails. Completely buff singletrack you could run slicks on and be fine. It's unlike anything in the Northeast, extremely cool. Also, everyone raves about Kitchel, but I found a bit out of place. Right next to it is a trail called Herbs, which might be the best trail out of the whole network. Make sure you try them both.

    Tap and Die is another one not to miss- I'm 90% sure the name refers to riding it without hitting your brakes- trust the trail builders on everything and keeping your speed will be rewarded over and over.

    The trails down from heaven's bench are awesome.

    Don't bother bringing a camera, the trails are way too much fun to stop and you'll never use it, but if you have a go pro you'll get great footage.
    I call for a mandate to allow only road bikes on trails to limit our speeds and increase our line picking skills-FB

    If you like riding bridges be sure to check out Burnham Down and Jaw.

    Epic trip. Burnham down, Jaws, Sidewinder, Troll Stroll, all great. The lift service on Sat at East Burke mtn was great, Jester is one sweet trail! I will try and put up a pic or two, epic.

    This is Jester, a very groomed downhill run similar to a moto or bmx track, lift serviced.
