    I made a video a few years ago but can't find it anywhere. I'll keep looking but as soon as my bike is back from the shop, I'll take some pics and make a few videos!

    So why the new name? I've never heard anyone call it anything other than Chimney Rock. For example MTBR has 115 reviews of CR and 0 reviews of Washington Valley.

    Just sayin'.

    chimney rock is just the nickname the actual name is Washington Valley Park,,somehow in the early days of the website it wasnt picked up on and the web host or Rangers didnt correct it ,pretty lame huh. but it is washington valley park not chimney rock.the name chimney rock comes from the white painted rock up by the bird watch off vossellar ave. Riders in the early days refered to the park as chimney rock because of the road that goes thru the middle of the park, i guess it just cought on .

    Just got my Haro back today, which is a hard tail but has some nice aftermarket components on it. Decided to finally go for a ride (it was beautiful out). I ride hard (aggressive freeride/downhill rider) and within 10 minutes of flying down the trails I looked down to find my rear tire was completely flat. Can't wait to get my Ransom back from the shop. =/ Hard tails are not the best for my style of riding and esp WV since its really rocky.

    Been to Diablo a couple times 2 years ago. Finally starting to ride again. WV doesn't have much for downhill but theres a few sections where theres pretty good downhill stuff.

    Well I blew a tube riding today after just picking my Haro up from the shop haha. So I'd say if you guys are going to ride hard, bring the DH "sled" haha. Hopefully my Ransom will be done by Friday.

    Bring an all mtn if you have one , DH is way overkill . if your boy has some skills a hardtail is ok as theres probably about as many hardtails as 4 to 6 in. trailbikes these days .

    There are some parts of WV that you can tear up like you would at a DH park. But I would say thats only 4 or 5 parts of the entire park lol. It is very rocky though. Also, there is a section of the park where there is an area across the stream that looks like it used to be an actual MX or bmx track with some jumps that have kind of withered away. A bunch of guys should all get together and rebuild it so theres some real jumps!

    Just rode again today with the hard tail (The Ransom is still in the shop =/). After riding today, I'd say your better off with a FS bike. Most of the trails are REALLY rocky and the hard tail really beats you up.

    It really comes down to each riders preference. Point is, CR is hardtail friendly as well. I've only been a few times, but have riden my HT SS there. Fun park!!!
    Nothing really witty to say..........
