    six mile run

    Why isn't this trail talked about more or regarded better like Chimney rock or Allamuchy? I think it's great, technical and fun as hell. What does everyone else think? Is it just a local secret? And whomever does ride it, what do you think of the log roll at the end of the twisty pines? I built up half of it from a tree that fell down and I noticed someone else built the other half.

    cause it's a central jerz gem
    No, it's not a local secret. There are other great options within 20min of 6mile too. I think that is a good thing. Keep this area of riders dispersed on the weekend.
    Technical... not really
    FUN as hell...

    Two local people head up the work there. I think you should look into who is doing the work there before you put anything up.

    Oh yea and you're on the wrong forum if you want to hear more about it

    Shhhh! Keep it quiet. Less is more. Seriously, it's not a secret and everything that Manny said.

    Last time I was there the nekkid lady from the Shining chased me for a mile or 2, so beware!
    In all serious it is a great place to ride but swamps easy with rainfall. Plus there's lots of horses on the western trails come spring/early summer so I always try to be cautious around them.

    I'm a big fan of 6 Mile. It is easy but a very fun ride. Wouldn't say technical but some trails are very tight. Its one of those places that you can cruise around leisurly and or pound on the pedal and really crank through some tight trails and have some fun. I've noticed you can do I think its like two 8 mile loops so theres a good amout of riding there. It's just lacking the accents and decents, overall its pretty flat.

    Technical not so much. Local secret not really. Fun as hell you got that right. I can never get enough of this place. It is well maintained and there is so much riding that you can do.

    I rode at 6 mile once and it was a pretty good trail. It was a little mix of everything, but it had no killer climbs.
