TOPIC: Ride recommendations needed

Ride recommendations needed 1 year, 2 months ago #44192

Hi,

A friend and I are coming to e'ville in a couple of weeks for the first time in a few years. See there is a few new trails. Looking for some ideas for good routes and trails to link. We are Advanced/expert riders ideally looking for rides around an hour to two hours. Staying at base of ski hill.

Thanks for any advice....

One to two hours isn't too long of a ride!

Best to start at Eagle (go down 219, and take a right just before the dollar general trail on the dirt road and just go up from there. Stay left and just keep going. If you really just want an hour or two, decide when to bail out across the road over to rain trail and head back to eagle for the descent back down.

Another shorter ride would be park at start of Rim, do rim, bent rim, (four rocks optional, but can be hard to find), white trail to tornado reroute, south pale ale.

Another shorter route would be white trail south of the tower (ride it while you can) to rocky's, then down buzzards/mutton hollow/porcupine, and then back across the top of HV.

Sorry, just to clarify, for three days we would probably do the following; wake up - 2 hr ride, lunch, 90 min ride, break with a beer, 60 min fun play ride, drink till falling down, sleep, repeat... However if someone can link up a 3-4 hr epic for me that would be great too. Thanks for the tips Jon!

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.
