    Flow trail in the works off Umunhum?

    A friend told me today that a ranger told him that a flow trail was in the works connecting the top of Umhunum to Woods.

    Has anyone heard anything?

    There's no mention of such a thing in their "Top 25 Vision Plan Priority Actions"; more likely the ranger was saying they busted somebody trying to build a flow trail down to Woods. BTW in the old days there were a couple trails going that way from the west side of the peak. Likely totally overgrown now; when I told MidPen I could show them where they were they were not in the least bit interested. Last time I tried to hike there I ran right into an active dope grow.

    It was nice to see that the connections to Demo and beyond are in the "Top 25 Vision Plan Priority Actions".

    Combine a trail like that with a chair lift and that would be the bomb. Take hikers and mountain bkiers up to the top.....

    Hell, just install an elevator and an escalator. No reason to ever exercise.

    They were probably referring to the trail that was built last year from the top of Umhunum to Woods. It's done already and it's kind of a a flowy trail. Hundreds of hikers though on weekends.

    That's what I'm thinking. Descent beginner flowy trail, buy way too many hikers on weekends looking to get to the peak. Share we must.

    Not sure what trail your referring to but I visited the peak for the 1st a couple weekends ago and hiked down from Summit towards Bald Mountain. Was thinking it would be fun to park at Bald and ride that new trail up to the summit and have a beer or two at the top.

    Is this the trail your talking about, or below Bald?

    Maybe Barlow?

    Some people who don't ride DH, Park, or Flow don't realize that you are usually more spent/anerobic at the bottom then you are at the top of an xc climb! I'm wheezing by the bottom of Endor, even. It's work!

    Yeah, the ranger was probably referring to the new multi-use Midpen trail to the Mt Umunhum summit - opened last year. There's no way in hell the words "flow trail" will ever officially come out of Midpen, unfortunately...

    I hope I live long enough to see Midpen open a singletrack trail that has some rocks. I may need to have my head frozen.
    The broken are the more evolved. Rejoice.
