    Nice video Greg! I didn't recognize some of those sections, so I went to HP for a ride yesterday, and I discovered that they are on a new trail! If you're heading southeast from Jenkins lot, you take the usual first right on singletrack but before you meet back up with fire road, take another right. When it dumps you out on fire road again, take a left, then a quick right, and you'll end up right at the beginning of the loop around Salem Pond. Really fun trail to get to the loop, much more so than the old way! Thanks for posting the video!

    Great discovery. The Trail is called "Rubber Duck Trail"

    That trail can be really f'd up to ride in the fall. Unexpectedly bony and slick in parts, which when covered by leaves can be...interesting to navigate. You do make it look easy, riding Rubber Duck that is. I prefer it in the other direction though, seems to flow a little better. Do you know who gets credit for making that trail?

    Wish I had stayed in Boston long enough to explore all of the gun club stuff. Your vids make me want to go back.

    I used Rubber Duck to get to the loop, did the loop clockwise (much more fun than counter-clockwise IMHO), then Rubber Duck back. It's totally fun and rideable both ways. I find the whole section south east of the Jenkins Lot to be much more rocky, technical and therefore interesting, challenging, and fun, than the northeast (gun club) section.

    Most of the trails run great in either direction. I often mix it up to keep things fresh.
    The Gunclub loops are my favorite stuff out there. I do a long route that enters the GC from the back side that is ruler. The good thing about HP is the varied terrain.

    The back, eh? From the Bay Circuit Trail? I'm always looking for ways to loop this place. I'm not an out and back kind of guy.

    Never seen anyone make it up the staircase, closest I've come is about 3/4 of the way up. Nicely done.

    Sweet vid. Haven't made it up that staircase yet. Awesome place to ride. You might see me riding there on a Cannondale Rush with my friend Bob who has a sweet Ellsworth Joker. Sometimes Dave on a insanely light Giant Warp comes along too.
