Trail Shredder
You may have already heard, there was a mountain biker-horse rider incident on Shredder last week. Bikers came from behind, horses spooked and bolted, one rider and her horse sustained injuries—concussion for her and nasty scrape on her horse. It’s a reminder to all to be careful on these lower trails, they are popular horse and biking trails.

excellent run is to ride up via winter route then bomb your way back down the summer route. Fall rains are creating some big puddles and muddy sections but most of the trail is pure fun.

Was there a triple linked Teeter Totter? I believe it was called a combobulator.

Rebuild it and they will come. I have not ridden since 2003, sad to hear about its decay

Very nice trail, fast in the upper section and gets better and more interesting towards the bottom. Definitely try it when you are in the area

Gently insistent ascent even this unfit geezer managed with just a few stops and a bit of walking.

The fun descent on Shredder was worth the effort.

Trail Up 'n' Over
This trail is bidirectional, but marked as DH only.
It's not necessarily the _funnest_ trail to claim, but it's doable, and keeps you out of the sun and the fire roads.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail in the middle section just below Twister junction. Looks like the builders are on it but ride with caution until work is complete. Thanks to the builders for clearing lots of windfall already! reporter
