This is a great, classic mtb trail—wouldnt change a thing about it. Yes, super impressed with anyone who actually climbs this thing. Otherwise, downhill is classic, fast, esge of your seat tech. Reminds me of how mtb used to be and a good alternative to all the machine built popping up everywhere. Excellent.

IMHO riding this trail up from EKG to Black Cap is the worst. It's a "double track" jeep trail. It's steep, rutted, long and boring. Going down *might* be fun, but I don't imagine it'd be particularly interesting.

I'm rather impressed that you went up this. It's quite fun going down, definitely way out there, and not at all in the style of a modern bike trail.

This is an access for the power line. It's usually muy, wet and nasty. Ride either Muffler or Pillar to Pond for a more enjoyable experience.
