Those trails are all about balance and commitment at lower speeds. They're some of the most technically difficult you'll find, with 3" skinnies thrown in for kicks. There are a few faster spots and airs to be sure but the main trail lines themselves are plenty challenging (and rewarding).
The video makes it look way, way easier than truth.
thax! I heard the song and thought it fit the mood of the trail.
@blkss. Yah not much jumping on that trail. It's funny how "old school" that trail is when I think about it. I used to ride that thing on a hardtail with 2" of travel and U-brakes. Everything was super-slow, you would do trackstands, crawl along logs and roots, tock back and forth, pedal stroke and pedal-kick wheely drops. It's hard to believe but we were doing that thing super - fast compared to how it used to be.
you can't go too fast as there's so much stuff going on - big roots, airs to flats - skinny after skinny after skinny. I could go faster but that would mean bypassing all the challenge. Instead i rode and fell off a lot of them. Not really dialed for the skinnies that day for some reason
There's a lot faster trails; I'll be on the shuttle bike tonight and try to get some footage. Even our fast trails aren/t very fast though./
