New trails are just awesome.
Question: Right at the beginning of the XC loop, after you cross over the riverbed, the new trail on the right (so on the south side of the property).....is that a new uphill or new downhill?
Tim - That's the new uphill. To the right of the hairpin turn at the bottom of the main xc downhill if you're entering from the riverbed - or to the left if you are coming down the downhill (go left and double back, instead of taking the hairpin to the original return trail).
It definitely needs strong signage at the top, because where it rejoins at the top it looks very naturally like a new left turn downhill option. And someone could get some real speed going down it. And people who are a little nervous about the swoop-in (right after) may see the new uphill as a beginners way down (which I argue is not needed at this trail system!).
By the way while it may need work - it's an extremely good first pass and it is very rideable. I singlespeeded up it several times yesterday and it's a long good sustained climb with just a couple of steep-ish bits and nothing technical.
