An awesome multiple award-winning electric enduro bike

17/12/2021

An awesome descent, with some high speed ripping at the top, some root drops in the middle, and some great bank turns at the bottom.

If you continue, the trail ends at one of the lakes and continues lakeside until reaching the point where you began the trail The lake-side bit is fairly technical and very fun. This trail begins with a small pump section with two smaller jumps and a third larger hip jump. I've master huck to flat though! Some wettness, but new sections are well drained and very good. Trail is now covered in snow and you can only ride the packed areas from where sledders and shredders have packed out a trail.

Well built jump line with wooden lips built into each jump. Also you exit onto a trail where hikers frequent, so keep it under control here. Continue pedaling up through the dark forest around small bands of shale-laden cliffs. Few sniper rocks on the trail. Or with only moderate climbing involved these trails can keep almost anyone interested for hours. Trail contains a rope-suspended ladder bridge, elevated bridges and a long-straight skinny.

 

From here the trail narrows and skirts a rocky hillside. Unfortunately, the lake-side trail has a hike-a-bike section in the middle. Amazing views of Castle valley are afforded after 50 meters of riding. 6 mile thrill ride through the dense pine forest of the park. This created a reroute of the single track. The turns are all smooth berms and easy to ride and not wash out. Freeze-thaw cycle isn't awful, but does make this trail rather slick. A full suspension bike with 3+ inches of travel will greatly enhance your experience! Stay straight when the trail intersects with a doubletrack and then bear left at an intersection with the winter/horse route.

To me it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining, or the sun is shining or whatever. As long as I’m riding a bike, I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world.

You can find everyone out here having fun from people in body armor and downhill bikes to families testing their kids limits to xc racer types riding intervals. Counterclockwise the descent is shorter but steeper in spots. This trail can be sandy during dry summer months and is best after rain, in the spring or fall.

 

Two wheel drifting is likely if you have speed but are not riding the top few inches of the berms. Continue pedaling up through the dark forest around small bands of shale-laden cliffs.

It is steep. It has a number of blind LH corners so whistle or use a bell so you can alert anyone coming the opposite way. This trail begins with a small pump section with two smaller jumps and a third larger hip jump. Use some caution in the corners here. The lower half features two rock drops including reef drop which is the largest rock drop and Highland and.

 

After a few bends in the trail you'll get through this section and then start hear the waterfalls in another giant valley that you'll ride above. This trail is the cherry on top when riding Porcupine rim! Big downed tree near the end of Lower Black. Technical singletrack in the Southside Hills above Kilbride. You can find everyone out here having fun from people in body armor and downhill bikes to families testing their kids limits to xc racer types riding intervals.

 

Trail contains a rope-suspended ladder bridge, elevated bridges and a long-straight skinny. Plenty of kick ups, jumps, drops, and huge berms. More branches down and seems they are often in bad spots, i.e. landings. Removable by hand saw. It's mostly a hike-a-bike up and then has an advanced all-mountain feel coming down.

Long pedal up form town but best when shuttled to the top. Fast, fun descent. Freeze-thaw cycle isn't awful, but does make this trail rather slick.
