Chair trail should only be ridden from the road down to the water's edge. It has a steep section with very tight corners that is not designed for climbing. There are some tricky turns and traverses that keep a rider on the edge of control but it's all great fun in a tight techy sort of way.

      Rideable. A couple down trees, but easily manageable.

      This should be a triple black.

      Lady above me doesn't know dirt. If you're rideing at the highest level there's no time to to think about furniture.

      Ride the trail, have a picnic but don't bring plates and eat right out of the dirt on the sharpest turn, I could go on it's all good nothing can compare with Chair!

      Like chair on the beach, I could not find any chairs to rest. Do not recommend if you need a place to sit.

      Some large trees down on the trail near the SOB junction. Classic trail and on great shape otherwise!

      Totally not a double black trail! Not even on a xc hardtail! A slightly steep blue trail. A few big trees blocking the path. Don't bother with this trail.
