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.

      Basically a creek running down much of the trail, makes for some very interesting riding, favorable even.

      Replaced the bridge of doom at the top. Still need to finish up the entry & exit, but it is rideable with a small step at the end.

       most trails on shore are technical rocky trails that are slower steeper or more dificult, which is fun! But Neds is fun because its also fast.

       Much more fun in the wet than in the dry. Water turns the rim-deep marbles into a much firmer trail bed. Give Ned's a rip on a rainy day.

       Garbage found on the trail by the last steep wood roll. Remember to take it all out with you and not leave it for the next rider.

       I rode Ned's for the first time today. Really rough and rugged and facing downhill, few drops, no big danger, long and really fast with no stop, a demanding experience. This surely makes it something unique!
