Bring your padded shorts, full suspension bike and pain tolerance because this thing is almost more roots and than dirt. I would say this trail requires "advanced" level skills to ride cleany over everything. These roots make what would otherwise be a very easy trail into quite the technical challenge Very fun, and very different from the downhill STA trails on nearby Hillside.

      New loose snow on top of a pretty deep goove or rut. Soft, but work.

       Bring your padded shorts, full suspension bike and pain tolerance because this thing is 10% dirt and 90% roots. I would say this trail requires "advanced" level skills to ride cleany over everything. These roots make what would otherwise be a very easy trail into quite the technical challenge!

       6/22/19. “Speedway” is poorly named for summer biking. It is narrow and near constant roots. Be confident in your skills and ride before trying. It is certainly much slower than the Tour Trail by Campbell Airstrip it roughly parallels.

       This is a great winter trail that I avoid in the summer. Although they aren't on Trailforks, you can connect Scary Tree, Rambone and Speedway for an amazing winter ride...with an obligatory stop as Whiskey Island for a bit of Scotch.

       Great snow conditions, fresh powder over packed down snow makes for great riding.
