    RP? CP?

    Have you been through any of the IMBA and NEMBA schools in the past?

    I have masters degree in hammering. Thats all I need. I see a forest...I see a trail and act upon that vision. Im what you call a rogue trail builder. Ok so maybe I didnt "alter" those trails. I have thought about adding miles to both. I'm always willing to learn. ROCK ON FRIAR!!!!!!

    Always learning is key, I always try to find better builders and get their advice, and work with others I don't always work with to get their insight and learn new tricks.

    Sorry... been dealing with people "altering" legit lines and features this year and it really has a bug in my ear. i.e. built something shiny, new, and challenging with stakeholder engagement/approval and then have it dumbed down a couple days later and then fix it and then dumbed down... on and on. Sucks that people alter stuff they never built or would have never thought to build and then have to fight that mentality.

    Nothing worse than messing with someones hard work. I wish some would have more of an imagination sometime and come up with really cool features instead of the same old moguls or pile of dead sticks. The local builders around here lack vision.

    Just out of curiosity, which trail systems are you referring to?

    Most. I do alot of riding all over the country. What you would call a real hammerhead. Racing, recreational, exploratory. This has been my experience. I live on the BIG SAND BAR so around here it's even worse. The trails are boring, loaded with spider trails mmmmaaaannnn and really lack direction or imagination. The "locals" think they are good at it but sadly.....the opposite is true. I would welcome a new new group to take the lead around here.

    Blue Mt, Sprain, Wilton Woods, Mianus River Park, Huntington State Park, Bennetts Pond, Trumbull, Tyler Mill, Miller's Pond, Rockland, and a hand full of others I'm forgetting are all worth some exploration and integrate natural features, flow, and challenges extremely well.

    Have you ridden Raystown in PA? I think thats the best example of well built mt bike trail on the east coast for Hammerheads, for techy chewy goodness Wilton Woods or Millers Pond in CT are very hard to beat.

    Don't know about LI but in CT we have techy tech trails and some of the feature and boulder/rock/log/skinny integration is best I've seen (off of the North Shore in Vancouver, Fromme is great I'd recommend it if you can get there!!!). But I'm a DH/cross-stuntery kinda guy so my idea of a good trail is probably very different than someone from the XC/hammerhead set.
