This is just a two-track. Gets you where you need to go but isn’t much fun.

Trail Bob's Trail
Construction on a new section of Bob's Trail should begin in June 2020. This segment will connect the 'southern' end of Bob's Trail to the Divine Intervention Trail which will eliminate the short but somewhat painful climb up the Somewhere To Ride Trai.

The newest (western) part of the trail is under construction but open for now. When/if it gets too dry we will close it. This segment will be fast and glory when complete.

We are working on the last segment of this trail which is closed. The first two thirds are open and riding well.

Trail Nuthatch
A relatively easy road conversion trail that traverses the main face. Rolls fast and is a bit sandy in places.
