       This trail is really cool, I wonder if there are trails in the area, the trail feels really old with how tight some of the corners are with some newer work done to it.

       There was some bits of old trail between first and second knolls and some getting to trailhead. Thats is all, the rest is all created or like I say found. Trail is two years is the making.

       3 Knobbs might be in my top 5 XC trails as far as technical difficulty goes. Super fun and very tough, tight, scary, twisty, pivoty, punchy, hoppy. One of my new favorite trails. I rode it twice in a row and dabbed at the same spot but cleaned it otherwise. Rad trail that I could only recommend to the XC/trials crowd.
