Closest thing to a downhill trail. An old corduroy road that turns into a creek in the winter makes Ned's able to accommodate a lot of traffic without significant erosion.

A great high-speed rush of adrenaline. If you are sitting at home and want to go for a great ride, come to Ned's. It is very versatile, and even a novice rider can ride most of it but really slowly. A good rider can do everything at about 30 km/h.

      reporter Pretty good. Not too many puddles. Does feel a bit chunky but that’s not a bad thing.
