    I am amazed at all the ferns so early this year...

    ...never so many in all different areas!

    Really cool with the trails running through like a ribbon of brown dirt!

    I'll be riding there 2 saturday's from now with my better half. What would be a good 10-12 mile sequence of trails there?

    I rode there a few years back and by the looks of the map, did 5858 and maybe hit flume, maybe missed it and wound up all the way down by the resevoir on the opposite side of 29 and had a burly hike-a-bike back up to Moon Lake Park, then hit t-rex and screamer.

    I'd like to avoid dragging wifey on a hike-a-bike. The revised map looks pretty good.

    If you have the map start at Main Gate head out Thorny, Big Blue, 5 Tree, Moto, Burts, Nitemare to (Nature Center) down Buddys, Twister, hard left onto Slide(down) to(Traffic circle), Dark, up Screamer(to campground paved road to)T-Rex2 to end, right up dirt road to the water tanks(highest point) then head down NFS, up Flume, 5858 and back at Deacon which you could ride or head back out Nauture's Way 1 should be tired by then!... LOL

    Hike a bike? well?.... prolly, but lots of fun in between!:D

    Hello neighbor!:thumbsup:

    Rides from the Bat Cave leave at 6 PM most weekdays, where we end up is a total mystery, and they vary in distance,:eekster: danger,:madmax: and place,:confused: riding the train bridge is awesome, only a 50 foot drop to rocks or little water unless you fall over the channel... LOL:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    It was a great afternoon ... i got out early and hit a bunch o-the trails ... was surprised I ran into nobody at all on the trail considering how many cars were out the front gate when I got back!

    Now if I could just get my lazy-butt rear tire to quit slipping sideways when wet and muddy it's be grreat - more than a couple near-hits vs tree!

    Was it hot last night?:D
    Man, talk about no air.

    Felt great the first half hour, then kind of took it easy the next one, and the last hour I felt great again.
    Made the rock stairs in T-Rex 2 again, even with a peddle strike, surprised myself, I got it now!
