    Another thanks to Bob W and crew

    Great job with the new switchback trail on the backside of Cardiac (off of white). Now if you could just do something about the momma bear and cub that I ran into that would be great.

    Agreed, the new trail is great. BTW, does it have a name? If not, we should have a naming contest with one rule, that it is named after Bob for all the hard work he's put in back there.

    No name just yet. Thanks for the thought, but the name of the trail will not have my name in it!!! Anyway thinking about Cardiac Bypass, keep the whole theme going on that side of the park.

    I am not the only one behind this trail there is a whole group of people that came out to help. And that is not just for this trail it is for all the work hta t has been done in the park for the past seveal years.

    That trail is a lot of fun in both directions. A week after we put it in, it was already packed down and it seemed like it was there for months. Great trail for an already great park.

    That's sweet...Cardiac Bypass.

    I call the cardiac trail Corkscrew cause that is what it feels like to ride.

    By the way, please people, don't forget the old purple trail, although the new trail is sweet, especially rollie pollie, which is/might be the best trail east of Moab, let's not forget about the other trails, they need love too.

    I agree 100% - you can put together a GREAT ride with some good climbing by taking the purple to the top (the switchbacks make it a great climb), then take Lower Cardiac all the way out to White and head up and pick up "Cardiac Bypass" and take that back up to the top of Cardiac, hit Rollie Pollie and then make your way back down.

    Man, now I'm thinking of ditching out of work early.

    Cardiac Bypass

    The new trail is found off of the purple blazed trail (Cardiac/Ditch) just before the trail tops out on the exposed bedrock (coming from the west). Take the single track heading north, you will go thru a faint intersection half way down, continue north (thisis the sectio finished this past June). The trail ultimately joins back up the the purple trail.

    If I have a chance will post a small map sometime over the next few days.

    Trail Names

    All of the marked trail in the North and Deer Park sections are named. The names show up on the maps and most actually have signs at the trail heads.

    Now for all the unmarked trails in the park...most have at least one name, if not more. And it is a long list. The name of the trail depends on who you ride with, the same goes for various features and intersections in the park. The more you ride the more you wil find out from folks.

    Go to www.jorba.org and look under the Allamuchy Chapter and you will find maps to both Deer Park and the North Section. Hopefully by the end of summer ther wil be a map for the Stephens/Budd Lake side of the park.

    Rollie Pollie is located on the top of the Ditch/Cardiac climb. Basically, you go up Ditch -- at the top of Ditch, you turn left onto Cardiac and go all the way to the top of Cardiac. There is a huge rock face that the trail goes over -- Rollie Pollie will be a trail on your left. It has lots of rock rollers and even some interesting USCGS markers on some of the rocks.

    Unfortunately my knowledge of the Mooch trails does not go beyond knowing the colored trails, of which i only know by their color, and now, i know what cardiac bypass is by Bob W's description. I don't even know what Cardiac is. This is a big reason i want to hit some TM in there, so i can at least discuss the trails if i have to. I rode Tranquility farms up orange a bit and took the switchback purple up to the top, to the big rock face and took bypass the last few times i rode there exploring. I just have so far to go with stamina. I am amazed of what you guys can do. I have to stop at least ten times during that climb, and some of those stops are lengthy. Those first climbs of the day really are killer.
