Thanks figured something like that happened but kept checking since was trying everything at least once. I guess I should do it once before disappears completely!

I’m over due to help out on a trail day and hope to help contribute some time this spring/summer. Thanks

So instead of just saying it, I did it. Petticoat Junction is now officially the perimeter trail and the original descent is now named Old Petticoat. We'll see if it sticks around. Looking forward to seeing you at a trail day.

Is this usually rideable on the section inside of Outer Petticoat? Every time I checked seemed overgrown and opted on Outer downhill but wondering if gave up too easy

With Outer Petticoat's descent being so much fun, the original descent trail has fallen out of use and hasn't been well maintained. It's usually rideable, but not the best experience. We should probably revise the trail mapping and make the Outer Petticoat route part of the main Petticoat Junction trail.

Great for beginner mtb riders. My son (age 10) and I did the trail 2x. He felt extremely comfort to move onto a move technical trails. The perfect trail to get beginner riders comfortable and confident.

Long climb or awesome descent that ends in either a 3ft rock drop, gully or challenging rock garden, it’s your choice what to pick. This descent includes the cool alternate line and a few small jumps and berms as well.

Great gradual climb or fun, fast, flowy descent, cool rock wall ride for expert riders if going down. Has one awkward switchback going down. This trail holds rain for awhile though, so don’t ride for a few days after a rain.
