I agree, good riding yesterday if a little wet. There is a new tree down on Dead Dog a little before Big Merlin. It is a pretty big tree about 18-24 inch diameter, so I built up some deadfall from the area to make it rideable (for the average rider). I won't be offended if someone cuts the tree though, I just wanted to help.

How are the trails looking. Have they received a lot of rain lately?

Is that a flower caught in your pedal, or are you just happy to see me?

You can also park some place like Little Rock City if you want to ride the rocky stuff.

If you get tired of the loop you have been riding just try going the opposite direction. It will seem like a totally different trail.

Also check out Golden Hill, that`s one of the best places around. There is usually a group there on Wed. nights.

Quit being so damn cheap and by a map!

IMHO, the best trails their are not McCarty Hill Road. Although White,Yukon, Porcupine,Big Merlin isn't a bad loop....Pale Ale(s), Rim, Bent Rim etc are all way more technical and fun (except for Bent...that's just sick! :shock: .)

Thanks Krag & everyone else who responded---

I actually have a map (two, in fact) but I was just wondering where people go and if they start at the training center. Based on my three-plus hour experience on the trails I mentioned (Race loop Rain, Sidewinder, Dead Dog, Big Merlin Race loop), I can't imagine continuing further to more trails without passing out. I'll try varying it a bit on the roads so that i can access porucpine rim and pale ale trails. I'm looking forward to trying something new!!!

Hey Krag -- we should meet up for a ride. I haven't gotten stitches in a long time!!! ;-) )

The new downhill section of the race loop is nice right now but I think it will get pretty bad after it rains. How about this weather!!!
