After riding at Alafia yesterday, the need for consistent trail ratings is now apparent to me. We only had a chance to ride North Creek before a friend had chain issues and we called it a day, but I wouldn't consider North Creek a medium trail. Luckily, I have friends that I ride with that have been to these parks before and were able to show me through the trail and tell me what to expect, but put yourself in the shoes of a newbie:
You go to Morris Bridge for a few months and somebody tells you about this awesome trail called Alafia. So one morning you head on down and you see North Creek is a medium trail. You think to yourself "I ride Indian and Heartbreak Ridge and those are extremely difficult trails, so North Creek being a medium should be nothing for me and my 5 year old son". Do you see what I'm talking about?
Why can't all of the trails that SWAMP maintains be rated on the same scale?
