    Anyone got a Moraine SP pic of "the stone escalator"?

    I think that is how it is known.
    You come around a big rock on a right turn, through some loose rocks, then continue turning right as you lunge up a root and small ledge, then a series of stair-like things until you've done a big U-turn and gained about 20 ft. of elevation. Then you cross some more rocks, logs, turning left... up onto some dirt and the top of the ridge where it's more or less flat.

    In attempting to ride it I forgot all about posing for pix.

    Thanks,

    The beauty of this whole section is that it is pretty difficult, but there is very little risk if you mess up - unlike some other sections on those trails. So pretty much anyone can ride up to it and take a crack at it. The first time I saw it I thought our ride leader was joking. My eye didn't visually define or really accept that that was the trail. But yes, that really is the real line. Very creative trail building!
