mOOn Lake... Ledge View/Lake View... new trails
Lake View/Ledge View Area... More new stuff at mOOn to ride! This is the first phase of the "new" trails section that covers an area of the park no one has been in a long time!
Lake View trail: The reopened "RED" trail was a really old trail/road. There were 55 downed trees blocking this trail, now it is open and you could drive a truck on it. Yes, it is wide and it is a multi use trail that the PM requested we reopen, so we did! Location start: Off the main service road same side as the upper entrance to Deacon. Ends at sharp turn on Skinnys(the wet area) OK now! I didn't "design" this trail(just reopened it) and it is "wet" cause it wasn't designed correctly, but it's there and we get to ride it! Mt bikers like mud right?...LOL
Trail two... new new new
"Ledge View," Location start...Enter from main service road near Deacon's upper entrance, a bit further ahead from the reopened RED trail(same side of road) This is a singletrack trail and it flows back and forth similar to T-Rex 2 woo hoo! It ends on the reopened RED trail.
These new trails will make for many more options, and even more when hooked into the preexisting trails, with more new stuff coming also! of course both trails are ridable in either direction. Trails are rough sketched on map and not yet GPSed.
Thanks to Clif, Bill, Mike, Jimmy, Paul, Duct Tape, Big Daddy Todd, and Rick for helping me get this stuff built open and ridable for all to enjoy.
I have included a map, but have no fear as you will learn the locations quickly. We will ride it Wednesday night, Thursday, and prolly the entire Thanksgiving holiday!...LOL
Ride the mOOn
rode ledge view on Friday, will be a sweet addition once it gets ridden in, also lee, why arte they plowing blue parts are turning into mud pits
LedgeView looks to be a nice addition! Thanks to all those who cut it in. Still haven't tried it cause when I am over there i really like the new "8" trail. Ride on!
There are two paths you can go by but in the long run........
Can't wait to ride it - thanks NEPMTBA
Gonna try to hit the moon this Saturday, if the three "W"'s permit - Work, Wife, Weather.
think im gonna go 2morrow
mOOn Lake...Ledge View/Lake View... new trails
I haven't ridden Ledge View yet, either. It certainly looks like it will be an incredible trail, a great addition to everything Moon Lake has to offer. If you ride it during the day, you will see where the name came from...quite an impressive view!
Waging war on my pedals every chance I get!!!
Glad you liked Ledge View, it makes for a great loop when combined with 8. As to the construction on the service rd, Yes, the road is being widened, so while under construction it will be tore up a bit. The park is handling the road work, and as a spin off of that, we discuss more trails in that area and they agreed.
Just a suggestion, ride 8 the regular way to TTS then follow TTS straight instead of turning left to up hill on ser rd. Head straight look on right for Ledge View, ride ledge view uphill( I know you like uphills) It brings you back on ser rd a bit up from 8 and Deacon.
Jonz, Nanker and all:
Hope to see ya there Saturday, Do you have a ride start time?
Enjoy your ride!
