    Last year I went there when I was in the area. I had a great time but it certainly isn't a destination biking spot. If you're in the area you might as well check it out. When I went it was very empty which was cool.

    Is it more of just a path down the ski trails or they have jumps and stunts or anything technical?

    There's some wooden things and a few small jumps and drops. Nothing too technical. There is some very steep singletrack. I could barely ride some sections but that was partly because of the rental bike's tires (this was before i got my Trek Session 7). You would probably be better off with a all-mountian or freeride bike; not a DH bike.

    There are some pretty cool trails i that area if you get a map. One of my favs is called Pepper's trail.
    My one caveat:
    They run a 50mile endurance race out of the ski resort and it involves a lot of double track and dirt road to get to the few singletrack sections. I've heard there's more stuff but I've never ridden it. The DH stuff is pretty fun though...

    The team training camp is good. Many people like to go there.

    Not to start an argument, but I talked to a guy last summer who talked me out of going. He said that if I liked Diablo, then i would be very disappointed with Denton. He said trails didn't flow, stunts were poorly laid out, lots of bad things to say. He told me to check it out if I really wanted to, but I would have more fun at Diablo even if every trail was closed except greenhorn and domboo.

    Then again, I have heard from others that Denton is a lot of fun.

    I wouldn't expect it to be Diablo or Snowshoe or Plattekill... I was thinking more like Wisp (Western MD), which isn't the best, but still a fun way to spend a day.

    Does anyone else feel as if Denton isn't worth a trip (I live about 2 hrs away)?
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.
