At todays Boyette workday we completed the first easier section of the new trail to be used for the Fat Tire Fest IMBA Epic ride on Saturday.
This is a fun trail that has easier options to the left, and the harder options stay to the right. There a few places where both trails come back together as one only to split again. A couple of the harder options are finished, but more work is needed to complete all of them.
It is about a half mile long as we have it now. When all is said and done and the entire length completed it will be around 1 1/2 to 2 miles long.
This section is called Imp Gulch. Imps are usually described as mischievous more than seriously threatening, and as lesser beings rather than more important supernatural beings. This trail has mischevious curves, drops, climbs and humps for the harder options. For the easier options one will be able to see riders on the harder options as they try to do battle with the Imp trail. Sounds like fun, right? It should be.
Anyway, it needs to be ridden in to pack the line, so enjoy. Be warned though if you chose the harder option some climbs will be a challenge!!
To access it after riding the Abyss, or just going straight to it, it cuts in almost halfway up the two track parallel to the South Abyss near where the benches are. You should see the orange tape where a rough cut path leads into it.
