lately a few friends and i have been parking at the bottom of the ski hills, climbing the road to the top, taking the ultra12 route, heading back down for some lunch and then doing it all over again

I usually drive to the top because I don't feel like wasting my limited energy on a nice long grind to the top. I have ridden from both training center and Eagle and yes it is closer and quicker to get started and a nice climb, but I would rather save my gitti up and go for the trails on top. I would reccomend the same to a new visitor as I don't know their ability or stamina level.

Skidder - I think your misunderstanding or I didn't make it clear. I come in from Salamanca on 219N the closest way to access the rim, bent rim, pale ale trails is to come up hungry hollow and park on the forest road. It would use more gas to drive all the way to Evl or Eagle forest road up 219, than to go directly into the forest at hungry hollow. Also, parking at the intersection of the pale ales/ anderson blvd, is pretty far from the top. I agree there's no need to drive to the top if you're starting your ride from Evl.

Is there a better way to access the souther sections when coming from Salamanca?

Skidder, next time I ride eville not only will I DRIVE to the trail, but I'm going to leave my truck running with the AC on high the whole time I'm riding. That way when I get done with my ride my truck is nice and cool inside. I'm sure it will waste a TON of gas!

You can ride up from the Village and access the trails from the Valley or Holimont in about the same time as it takes to drive from either direction.

About 30 minutes riding at a moderate pace.

No need to drive to the top.
