    Kelso or Albion for freeride?

    Hey guys i'm trying to decide weather to go to Kelso or Albion this weekend. Does anyone know if either of these two places has any freeride elements? Not looking for anything too major just good enough to keep me entertained for a couple of hours. Went up to Ravenshoe last week and i had a blast so anything to that effect would be great.

    Thanks a million

    Albion is all fast flowy single track. No free ride stunts except for one new tree ladder bridge thing that is not realy on the trail and even that is prettty tame. It is a great place to ride but not if you are looking free free ride stuff.

    Much the same for Kelso. Most of it is singletrack that is also fast and flowing. Close to the upper parking lot is a section called the X-Treem trial. It is mostly rocky, but there are a couple of stunts that have been built. Certainly not Ravenshoe caliber but may test you a little.
    It's only pain......

    Kelso

    You want to go to Kelso over Albion...a few more stunts and technical trail on Xtreme. Plus this weekend will be very busy at Albion with people going up to pre-ride the course for the 24 hour next weekend.

    Another vote for Kelso.

    There are sone rock gardens on the East end at the top of the chair lift or defibrilator climb.

    Kelso, IF it HAS to be one or the other.

    Given the choice you'd be better off with Waterdown. Lot's of stunts built up in the thick of the trail. Ramps, logs, bridges ..... all kinds of stuff to build a law suit on.
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    ... and cookies. :D

    Waterdown is in ..... Waterdown. Hmmm, Hwy 5 & 6, IIRC. Do a search here and you'll find good directions. BRING A TOUR GUIDE!

    Thanks to all those that took the time to reply. hit up Kelso and it was fun. that first uphill damn near gave me a hernia!! and someone knocked down most of the freeride stuff at the top, so sad... but all and all the lady and i had a good time and a nice swim afterwards.

    Cheers to all and safe riding
