positively biblical; wet with swarms of attacking insects. it was like a werner herzog movie. you know, "aguirre, the wrath of god". good time. they have cut some new trail and it is carpet smooth. similar feel to the new stuff at holiday valley. even tho' it was raining, it seemed that my impact was pretty minimal. that being said, there was at least one spot where running water was following the trail. it's a 2 hour 15 minute drive to the park. google directions worked good. what do ya get? some killer climbs, a killer view, roots, some rocks but nothing compared to evl, short, tight lines...the insects only attacked once but they followed us for quite awhile stinging the bejebus out of us.
if you do go out, be sure to stop at tom wahl's in avon and get the wahlburger with cheese.
roadside corn is $2 a half dozen on route 5.

Uh, 54 stings and counting. Didn't sleep last night, the itching kept me up!

Course was fantastic, even the re-route was good. I saw the running water on the trail and though oh no, but they held up pretty good.


Can switching to Gieco save you money on car insurance........did the Little Piggy scream wee wee wee all the way home?

This Park has some incredible singletrack to offer if you know where to find it; I could not find any maps online that covered the singletrack I was on today. Luckily I met up with some locals who pointed me in the direction of some of this unmapped and incredible twisitng singletrack due South off of the Sidewinder run shown in the map on this site. Specifically if you ride from Racoon Run (dbt) and then turn into Sidewinder (dbt) ride this until it comes to a 4 way intersect. On your left before the the turn into another segment of Sidewinder there is an almost unoticeable single track trail head. This then opens up into a a number of singletrack trails with some rocks, roots, and intermediate drops and climbs. The conditions were perfect today; dry and no mud, incredible Fall landscape. Althought I didn't cover as much as I would of liked given my time restrictions and my first time out here I know this is yet another great riding option in the future. Enjoy

Suicide 6 is done and what an AWESOME day of racing! The course (WNYMBRO approved) is in perfect shape. This is an excellent place for riding, even better for racing.

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.
