Trails were in great shape today. I might be butchering the trail names, but I started at the top of Brissly Trail, then hooked up with Pippsissewa. Found the reservoir and hit North Lake trail. After that it became a mother, as the next 1.5 miles had about 400 in elevation change. That was Kunagwa trail. Crested it, and found Sulphur Springs trail, and descended about 200 feet in the last mile or so.

All in all the trail is in great shape. Three soft muddy spots on Kunagwa, other than that it was dry and fast.

Trails here are superfreeways in many parts, as they are multi-use. Most of the trail is doubletrack, with some spots probably able to handle three wide. The walkers/joggers generally yield to bikers. Dogs were a different story.

Get out and ride :wink:

Victory!!!

I put the 4th rock on top of the sign. The other three were already there. Don't know what that indicates, but it looked cool.

Thunderstorm coming through this evening. Will check in the morning and let you know if the trails are suitable for an evening ride.

I'm sorry I turned Holly into an atheist and made her move to the wilderness.

This trail is in South Carolina. He just just moved there and is forever homesick. We appease him by not deleting his account! :lol:
