       Spotted two cubs at the bottom of Ingles Field near the fire road at about 4:15p 5/10 right before the rain came in

       I find riding up this trail be really easy. But honestly, don't descend down this trail, it is really lame. Climb up this trail to greenslick, so you're getting what you deserve.
