    Being out in Chino Valley I ride the peavine occasionaly. The sad part is the trail is closed behind the airport and does not go all the way to the dells. I am stuck riding 89 into prescott. There is talk of opening the trail all the way through, But it seems to be stalled because of trail access issues....

    Heh, I know exactly where that plane is. I think he uses the railroad grade to take off from.

    I think you are right. As I said in the other thread, it sort of redefines the idea of multi-user-trail.

    I could never get comfortable with them on the Monkey...shave two inches of the TT and voila. We'll see.

    That's a Husky (the airplane). Only needs 200-300 feet to takeoff and land.

    Well, kind of, but if there's any obstacle and depending on the wind, it may take a little more. Not that it isn't impressive, but total distance will be more. I've watched quite a few helios though, and that makes the husky takeoff seem "long". From our vantage point it looked like 20 feet, but I'm sure it was a bit more. I do get a little pissed waiting for powered-gliders to get down on final though It ain't a short approach unless you're descending well over 1000fpm with a full forward slip from downwind

    From where I fly over, I couldn't tell whether it was a husky or just a cub. It's right off the departure end of 12, slightly to the right next to the railroad grade.

    The real cool one is the strip in the middle of Chino Valley.
