    So join in the thread.. What have you cleared lately? Lets see some AZ chunk!

    Cleared a major turning point in recovery from broken leg suffered while landing too close to second set of doubles now I'm putting both feet on ground while using crutches.

    Trail 15, Mount Gretna PA, small sampling of what does not look like a trail...
    approximately 3 miles of this, with a few breaks in between...

    Did you go up it or down it?

    Both directions are equally as nasty, but down is definitely preferred, especially after hitting trail 4.
    I ride there a lot, and plan to hit it tomorrow morning I think I have only cleaned the entire trail once in 5 years (going down)...

    Here is another shot from last week, same as first photo from a slightly different angle. I did not realize I had a head on my back either
    This is one of the most technical trails in PA IMO.
    Sections of Mt. Penn are nasty too.
    If you want to give it a shot, let me know...

    Classic Portal shots. I walk the sections people have died. I highly recommend you do the same.

    Nice work. It looks soooo much bigger in real life. I though I'd hit it from the pics, but when I got there..... no way!

    I think so . Don't ride there enough to know. It's not too far from the falls.

    Does anyone have photos of the sections where people have died? It would be interesting to see them.

    Here's some moving pictures of the portal in the rain. There's a few sections exposed enough to kill. You'll see this in the video.

    There are actually a couple places where folks have died and plenty other places where it's a real possibility.

    The upper right section is a rubbly wrap around turn. This is where my second photo above is taken from.

    The botton left arrow points to an oddly shaped rock. Doesn't look like much from this angle, but it has bucked folks over the edge.

    It's worth noting that this pic is shot looking back 'up' the trail where mine are looking 'down'.
