      A few soggy spots towards the bottom but otherwise riding great. No snow at the top. Nice job on the trail rework on the Flat Creek section - more...

      Super loosy goosy. Prepare to drift, and don't trust that outside line. The smoke is starting to let up.

       Got shuttled to the top by the awesome Willamette Mountain Mercantile. Really fun first ride in oakridge! Top section has some flowy berms, middle has some gnarly fast straights- watch for the blind turns, and the end keeps going into the lower creek valley. All in all a wicked fun trail. It was raining and the dirt was primo. Go get it!

       Did this ride solo at night, starting at the bottom, climbing to the top and back down. What a friggin' blast! Those rollers, berms, and jumps in the top section get your energy flowing. Long straights were just begging me to let go of the brakes and I did. Wide, high, and well packed berms made for easy climbing and horizontal g-pulling on the downs. With a light at night, I felt perfectly safe to let 'er rip without worrying about hikers (who would have had flashlights I would have seen). Needed to cut speed in lower half (just how the trail is built). This is a must-do ride. I wish I had time to do it again, but we're leaving for home (Reno NV) first thing in the morning.

       I was blown away by this trail. Came in with very low expectations and was pleasantly sup prized. What a blast of a trail! Great job trailbuilders! Fast and great flow. One of the best examples of a "flow" trail I've ridden on the top section with tons of side hits and double opportunities; and then leading into the original trail which is super fast and a great stretch of singletrack.

       Extreme let-down, not worth the $20 shuttle. Poorly built corners and rollers. Some fun doubles at the top and a couple good berms at the bottom. The ironic bit is these natural berms are way better than any built berm on the trail.

       Was shuttled by the Oregon Adventure shuttle company. Was billed as 45 min to 1.5 hour adventure, but was the most boring waste of elevation and money. Flow is non-existent, as are any semblance of jumps, berms or tech. All you get is flat fast singletrack with blind flat corners that will send you off the side of the trail. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

       Some trees across the trail near the top. Had a blast. First time here. Pedaled up from the pub in 95 min. Steep at the top. So fun coming down

       The upper half of this trail is fun and flows well. The bottom part is exceedingly boring straight-line singletrack.

       I was a fan. Top section a pump track with tons of whoops, berms, jumps. Middle section more raw speed, braking bumps, natural raw trail. End loose hairpins. Mostly a gravel road shuttle, gravel road was steep in sections had a layer of deep loose rocks thrown on top made for intersting traction in car. I liked this trail slightly more than Larsion Rock it was a bit longer and had more variety and easier to go faster because you could see further ahead.
