my guess is that you will be able to hit everything twice with the 4-5 hour ride plan. we were not moving at a fast pace... first off road ride of the year had be sucking air...

if I was going to head there I would have wanted to do a 3-5 hr ride, waiting to see the weather report for this coming weekend.

we had a few guys from NAMBA Sugar Grove, PA and Jamestown Seagertown........, and the guys from Youngstown Ohio... came over,,, had maybe 8 riders in all.... the snow was just a dusting,, didn't get too warm or too cold..

a lot of rocks... think rim and bent rim....although no huge car/rv size stone..

some sadistic saps enjoy having you ride a jumble of rocks around the switchbacks... MZ and a few thought these were great,,, being the wuss that I am,,, I swore, dabbed and prayed a bit while making it through... a few nice flow (ish) downhill sections,, but the place is not really built for speed, more technical.


from Jamestown it was 2 hours to trail head... I86 to 90 to 79....

best idea is to bring the wife and kids, drop them at the Grove City Outlet mall. the trailhead it like 15 minutes from there.... you could ride and have fun.. while they shop....

ASP ridgetops were perfect skiing today. There was about 4 inches of new fluffy powder over a nice base. I skied out the groomed trails and then re-scouted what we building next month. Moved the flags around a bit (the trail is never in the right place until the flags are moved at least once).

Only problem was towards the end of the day the sun was so high and everywhere out of the shadows the tops of the powder started to melt so when you skied over it, it pushed it into the cold stuff below and things iced up pretty bad.

But I super psyched for this new singletrack. It's going to be an awesome trail.
