Today’s course is all about wicked fun trails, what an e-bike can do and how to have a Rip Snortin Good time doing it – woot woot Instead of creating a race, we thought a Poker Challenge would be a great way to get out and ride the trails at your preferred speed. This might be the day to manage battery and body as we want to put the icing on the cake for the first ever weekend of E, E-Bike Nation. Thanks for being part of history – you earned it – MEGA On!!
Details on Card Draws:
Full Lap 1 nets 5 card hand – now you’re in the game
If rider has more battery, they can loop a second lap for a two (2) card draw
If rider has more battery, they can loop a third lap for another two (2) card draw

Like most of blues here, very pedally and not always flowy, seems like whole hill developed crew of XC guys without gravity teail digging experience?

A very nice climb trail. I would call it a green with a punchy end and a few blue climbing obstacles. For reference, Xylem on Maple Mountain is much more difficult. What’s great is you aren’t gassed by the time you get to Double D and will still have legs for another climb after. As others have said, it’s a beautiful forest and you will be appreciating the natural views during the entire climb.

This is a really fun, easy trail to bomb down too! Visibility is good for seeing uphill traffic.

Is the lower section re-opened after maintenance. My friend told me that on Saturday he rode the whole trail top to bottom.

Thanks Rick for building this nice climb trail and it was great meeting you. Had an awesome time on loam line, some of the biggest trail jumps I ever hit! We ended up driving north and are in Cumberland now but thanks for offering to guide us.

Trail description is right, nice rocky faces, with ride around options. The ride arounds have become quite prominent, so is worth a look around when riding first time. Think if in doubt and want the more technical line, look left. Great trail.

It's been a long time since I've ridden in this area and I'm blown away with the quality of the climbing trails I've been on so far. This trail is a gem.

My favourite climbing route up the mountain now. The trail is well thought out with consideration of the natural terrain and drainage in the area. Beautiful forest and a treat all year in any season.
