    Trail 5

    Just wanted to plug Trail 5. I had not ridden it much in the past but did last few days via Sidewinder and Fat Tire Travers (45?) If you like smokin donwhill of the xc variety go rip trail 5. It is my new favorite downhill in the foothills, just extremely fast and very flowy with high speed little jumps
    it is a gas.

    are the water bars a little more tamed now that it's had a chance to be ridden in?
    Just ride down there and jump off something for crying out loud...

    I like the loop they created with the Fat Tire connection, but I've been slightly saddened by the increased traffic on trail 5. It used to be a spot you could go to see virtually nobody on your ride, and with a crazy fun downhill. It's amazing to watch how the trail had degraded with increased traffic since they opened Fat Tire. Oh well, it does make a nice loop.

    A little bit. They had Mt. Everest going on the face of the steep hill.

    I've climbed it before but it's nice to loop it from Mil Reserve, up connector, the fireroad then Sidewinder, Fat Tire. What is that if you go left instead of down 5, Freestone Ridge?
