Went to DSF this weekend. biked the West side. Parked at Cornmill Shoals.
The ride was shorter then I hoped for but that was partially due to a flat tire my buddy had on the trail, and needing to get back home (to watch the kids) so my wife could go out shopping.
The climbs were not as long as I had imagined but more technical then I have seen. My SB8 rear tire spun out a lot of the way up 2 trails and I had to walk many a section... felt like such a noob. (I need someone to show me the line choices some time. )
The views from the top were amazing though. I should have brought my DSLR for a photo shoot. I tried snapping some with my phone but they came out to be some of the worst looking photos I have ever seen. If a regular camera adds 10 pounds,my cell camera added 30.
The desents where a lot of fun. I liked hitting the rock outcropping on the sides to get some air. But it was nice that you had choices on the downs, I could see my wife being able to handle most everything out there.
I will definatly be back soon.
How much longer of a season do we still have left for riding DSF. Will the freezing temps keep bikers off the wet rocks?
Anyhoo - Great ride. Beautiful scenes, well marked trails, and easy to get around.
