Rode Rim and Bent Rim Saturday. Conditions were impeccable. So incredibly dry right now I just don't want to jinx it.

Rode the other trails up on the ridge today and they are also in amazing perfect condition. Love the new section on the rain trail. So much nicer than the mud, rocks, and pallets that constituted that section before.

One question, what is that new single track just after the south end of the white trail and before north pale ale? It looks like it would go down parallel to the east portion of Anderson blvd. Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore it.

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

That is correct, top of Eagle. Meet at the clearing near the Sidewinder/Eagle "T".

On another note:

I got out yesterday for the first big ride since my injury 15 months ago. All I have to say is: WOW! I can not believe how freakin dry it is, and if you have never been down Eagle Trail you have no idea what you are missing. Everybody should find a way to get a trip down this trail worked into one of your rides, even if you need to park a car at the bottom.
I rode up Mutton Hollow to the KC - FLT - Rocky's Run (amazing!) - up to Buzzard's Breath - Mutton Hollow - Yukon's Lunch - Mutton Hollow again - Porcupine - Up Big Merlin to Rain Trail (re-route needs tlc) - Sidewinder - freakin Eagle Trail! I timed myself and came up with about 15 minutes to the bottom of Eagle with 95% of that being a downhill joyride.
About 17 miles, about 2-1/2 hrs, used my granny, not tellin how many dabs on the White Trail, ass is big time sore, arm/wrist held up pretty well,
the smile simply could not be wiped off my face.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
