    Wow! Both of you guys have done great jobs! I mostly ride Marsh Creek, but am just getting back into riding after 12 years. PAFreedrider, is that your property? How much room do you have to work with? I'd definitely like to see more pics.

    i like your palet wall ride. I wish I would have thought of that. I've been digging for the last 2hours, and pushing a wheelbarrow up my hill. Unfortunately all the good dirt is all the way at the bottom of the hill. I couldn't take any more pic's tonight, it was getting too dark. How big is the gap on that double? It looks pretty big.

    PA Freerider, I see you found my little secret in the quarry, otherwise known as Bonner Park. I have to hand it to you for building those obstacles as I don't have the balls to ride them.

    Phil, glad to see you on a non-skiing board. If you ever want a tour of Bonner park after work let me know. Its a fifteen minute drive from NTS.

    Here is a quick map I made of the trail loop I do after work. I usually do a few laps in about 45 minutes or so. Perfect for washing the stresses of the day away.

    I occasionally hit Bonner for a quick XC ride after work and have seen your jumps and other stuff, you have built a lot of nice stuff out there. I am tempted to get a tougher bike bike and give it a try. Anyway, I just wanted to say nice work.

    so i checked out this place today...decent short loop, although I didn't find the stuff that pafreerider built. using the map posted is this stuff in the "quarry" or "terrain park"?

    also, is it okay to park next to the locksley strain stop building? it says it's private property, but i didn't know where else to park.

    You don't know me but since I spend some significant time reading over at the epic board I feel like I know you. Actually you can find a picture of me at the bottom of your AprilPhool's Day post from a few months ago. If you are ever looking for a fun yet quick after work ride close to home, let me know and I'll give you a tour sometime.

    The terrain park is at the top of the quarry along the ridge. Since the road is now a dead end because of the bridge I don't think it really matters where you park. I park in the middle of the road.

    Well, I tried to ride here tonight, but after running into "John", he was willing to show me around, I broke my chain so I had to push my way out. Looks liek the trails have a lot of possiblity. I would be up for a Sunday AM clearing if anyone else is.

    Phil:

    Sorry man, I have been on the road all day and this is my first time on a pc. I would have responded otherwise.

    I'll make it up to you. Get your chain fixed and I'll meet you Sunday. I'll keep the beers in the trunk cool.

    I thought Betzwood was "off-limits" for riding?

    I use to build those trails back in the day with a couple guys.
    There is another trail along the creek that takes you out to Station Road that is a good warm up ride.
    I was looking at those jumps and they are sick.
    Nice job.

    I must have just missed you Phil. I'm guessing that was your WRX I saw last night.

    I'm back there most nights after work so maybe one of these days I can give you a tour of the place.
