Boyette routes
« on: November 10, 2008, 06:40:50 AM »
Connector trail from south end of Vista  Ridge to to the south west entrance of East Meadow.  Good hills,  great views, completes the loop for the inner blue trails. Do it.

There are "section use restrictions" the land managers want us to adhere to.  Not saying this isn't a possibility, but they really frown upon anything not approved.  Kind of like your wife going into your wallet and taking money out; probably okay, but you want to know about it and approve it.

speaking of Boyette's routes... how does everyone like the new climb out of the end of the right most (harder) pandamonium trail?  Now, before you get all crazy about taking away the tough straight (but short) climb that was there... it is still there.  Now we just have a new option to make a quick sharp left and climb out on the less incline but LONGER sustained climb out.  I think is a bit tougher and gives me more bang for my buck.  I liked the straight up climb out before, which I have never cleaned all the way.  But the new climb out is a bit longer and it seems you have to work harder longer to make it out.  The new climb option still tough and it goes with the "harder" trail theme.  It is just not as  dangerous and less possibility for us to fall back as I have seen a few of you do.   8)

Overall, the Boyette trails were rockiiiiiing.  Best condition I have seen them in a long time.  There is a bit of brown ice on the quadrant with the pine needles but very enjoyable if you like the quads...

I like it. I enjoy the longer climbs as opposed to the shorter/steeper ones.

I'm not so keen on it simply because the third option was intended to be a difficult climbout that you have to work your way to attaining.  After the FTF the new one may be closed - gotta' think on it.

I applaud you for that Garry.  Don't dumb down the trail to your skill level, instead increase your skills so you can ride it...I have never made that climb on the singlespeed but I have gotten oh so close... I look forward to when I actually make it.

The entire trail has been ridden in nicely. It was good from the beginning but it has gotten better and better through time and with the work thats been done on it.

It still is difficult with the new climb out.  Kinda of making a spider thing out of it now but both are good.

I agree! While I've made that climb on my SS, it's not easy, and it's not and everytime thing. We usually stop and play with that climb a few times as it is so tough to make on the SS.
