Any news on projected closing date for this year? If I remember right there is a lot of dear hunters in area. When does shotgun season start?

Did an amazing ride at Letchworth Saturday. Almost perfect conditions - except for leaf cover, obviously. Only encountered 2 or 3 soft spots and one small puddle (out in an exposed area of field) in just over 15 miles of singletrack. Even the ravines were barely wet.

That being said, we were the only two bikers out there the whole day. Very surprised by this. Chatted with two hikers, however. Also odd to have to worry about fading daylight at 4pm!

One MAJOR blow down on a section VERY close to the canyon drop off will have to be addressed. A huge tree so large that even a work around would be difficult to do. Plus it could be dangerous if people try to cross the tree on the canyon side. It's a long way down!

Oh yeah - and they put up a new sign at the Hogsback lot stating that bikes WERE allowed on that first section near the dam. We had heard that they wanted bikes to remain off that section as sort of a buffer "families & hikers" only area.

Great to hear!

Come out this weekend to the trail building day on Saturday, or the Roots, Rocks & Ridges race on Sunday.
Plenty of great riding still left this season...if this rain stops.

I say who gives a sh!t of some dude doesn't want to wear a helmet. It's not going to hurt anyone else but him if he crashes.


You must never have seen it when the Wales Fire Company invaded Hunters Creek to go get someone out of the pipeline downhill area 12 years ago on Memorial Day, I know that there have been many miles ridden there since then but it was not a pretty sight when they brought her out on a stretcher on an ATV trailer.
Wasn't pretty, just sayin'

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.
