Trail destroyed by Wesgroup. All wood features have been chainsawed. RIP Green Bastard.

Most likely, as with Ray's, the jumps probably had nothing to do with it. Liability is a thing of the past......

I wish the builders had invested the time on trails or a new one higher up that would of survived. Now that they are gone, all the work is for naught. It is not like anyone didn't know all lower trails are condemned for construction anyway so it seems to me no one should be surprised.

The trail was actually destroyed by a vandal. Wesbuild has no issues with the trail.

People need to stop wrecking green bastard! me and friends just filled in breaking bumps and smoothed the trail out a few weeks ago and its already destroyed again from people slamming on there breaks and riding it in the wet. So don't complain if green bastards in bad shape. You can blame the teens that ride it when its pouring.

I’m about 6 months into mountain biking, this trail was fantastic. Super fun woodwork and jumps I could half ass hit. Can’t rate this trail highly enough.

Dear trail fairy, not exactly sure how to get a hold of you. But I met you a couple months ago I believe and you had a dog. I’ve been wanting to get out and do some trail building is there any way to contact you? I’ve never done any type of building but I’d like to support the trails.

There’s like a solid wood “closed” sign permanently bolted at the entrance. Is this trail open?
[Reply]

trail-governor (Oct 15, 2020 at 7:50)
It’s not bolted and it’s usually covered up when the trail is obviously open. Due to the greedy nature of unskilled riders it usually gets closed during heavy rains. This is not a trail you ride during or after a storm.

My favorite lower burke mountain trail. Fast and reasonably technical for a blue. Feels reasonably natural without much scrubbing of the trail.

Do read too much into the question marks... Trailforks doesn't always know what a character or icon is and substitutes questions marks.

Great trail today. All of Burke is in good shape save for the logging on the lowers. Sad to see it go.
