    Windrock Park

    Has anyone ridden the mountain bike trails at Windrock besides the downhill course. I have heard there is some sweet cross county and all mountain trail riding up there. If someone is familiar with the trails, I need some help on deciding where to start and what route to take.

    By the way I am looking for a 10-15 mile ride that is technical and fast in sections, but where I can also take my time if I want to.

    I used to off-road up there frequently during college. I have seen the DH course in action, however I never saw bikes on other trails. Looking at the trail map I don't see any bike specific trails. Chances are you would be sharing with 4WD, ATV, motorcycle and any other gas powered lunatic. From trail experience...I would avoid any trail up there NOT designated bike only. Even then, be ready for the off course redneck.

    We have been building some XC trails over the past 4 or 5 winters. Its slow going since there is only really 2 of us consistently. However we have about an 7-8 mile loop depending on how you loop the upper trails. Its very raw, very technical, and physically challenging. Everything has been hand cut and built by two guys that used to build the DH trails, so when it goes down, expect very technical DH orientated trails. The best way to find the trails is go up towards the Windrock Park Campground and the trailhead is on your right as you go up the hill. There is a small pull off with gravel parking and a sign.

I'm interested, but I have never raced before. Any other info would be great. If you don't know the answers it's fine, just thought I would ask.

    I don't know. I'm only up there a few times a year. Post up on the Ridemonkey site. Most events there are on the smaller side but a lot of fun and you'll get to know some of the locals. If I was closer, I'd be there all the time.

    I did the 3rd Coast race at Coldwater and had a blast. Planning on running this one too. Might head out there this Fri to check out some of the bike specific trails. I've only ridden dirt bikes out there in the past.
