       Is this usually rideable on the section inside of Outer Petticoat? Every time I checked seemed overgrown and opted on Outer downhill but wondering if gave up too easy

       With Outer Petticoat's descent being so much fun, the original descent trail has fallen out of use and hasn't been well maintained. It's usually rideable, but not the best experience. We should probably revise the trail mapping and make the Outer Petticoat route part of the main Petticoat Junction trail.

       Thanks figured something like that happened but kept checking since was trying everything at least once. I guess I should do it once before disappears completely!

      I’m over due to help out on a trail day and hope to help contribute some time this spring/summer. Thanks

       So instead of just saying it, I did it. Petticoat Junction is now officially the perimeter trail and the original descent is now named Old Petticoat. We'll see if it sticks around. Looking forward to seeing you at a trail day.
