    I cant believe header turned before that real short slippery rocky hill that leads up to the drive way. He knows what im talking about. By the way header me and bonerjam ( my cousin) have been able to make it up that alot easier now. He is looking for another bike and then we will be out there to show you how men ride

    I know where You're talking about, that was fun. I'm glad you guys are getting better and starting to enjoy riding more :thumb

    I have some parts I need to put on this weekend but if I get my project done today I won't have to do any stuff on Sunday. I would really like to get out for a ride then. Maybe even some gravel :patch

    Looks like you made the right choice going there after leaving the Madison ride.

    I didn't know that there was that many trails there. All I got to see was the hills, but being on the KLR that day we weren't trying to do too much there.

    Its difficult for people who aren't fumiliar with the property to link any sort of trail together that flows. Thats why I started marking a trail but I think it turned out a little too difficult so I haven't continued marking it. But I still show people around a lot, so does the owner. There is a lot of good riding at that place, its just not user friendly to unload and start trail riding your first time out there.

    I would agree with that. Once you gave us the grand tour, I feel I know my way around pretty well know. It would be pretty easy for a noob to pick a wrong trail and get screwed, however most the tricky area do have an easy escape route.

    This is a very good point. There are no areas where you can get in over your head and then can't get out of.

    Most all the double track is easy, even the "hard" stuff is possible if you really want to get past it. Most of the singletrack isn't all that difficult it just has a fairly high penalty for failure. That being said there are a couple spots of singletrack that are quite challenging but you really have to want them to find them.

    After you get over the normal elevation changes that make up the place it really isn't that bad. Then when you want something new and challenging you can try the steeper hills or if your a new rider you can stay on the stuff that resembles roads. Hell i've ridden on more challenging terrain on public roads than if I were to stay on the easy stuff.
