    Jason,

    It's been raining here for something like 2 or 3 weeks straight, so the knob will most likely be very muddy.

    There's a BUNCH of new trail out there. I'm not sure when it was added, because I moved back to Wooster from Arizona at the end of last summer. I used to ride the knob daily back in its heyday, and I think it's way better know.

    Basically, there are 3 changes:

    The "Beginning" section around the fern gully has some new trail. The new sections re-route around some of the muddy spots. Also, the over-under bridge area has been completely changed.

    There's a bunch of new trail around the "middle" section near Furnace Hill. Much longer. Not real exciting.

    The old Triple Jumps are gone, and once again, there's a ton of new trail near the end. There are some very nicely done stunts and bridges there, too.

    Overall, I really like the changes. The trail is much longer, and the new sections detour around most of the old muddy spots.

    Have Fun!
    -Mike

    I got a friend into biking, and he's just mesmerized by FR/DH. The best part? He's into photography too, so maybe I can drag him out there and get some nice shots of random people. I'll see what I can do.
    Now with eggs.
