Ridgeline is OPEN
« on: October 13, 2009, 04:10:23 PM »
Ridgeline is OPEN as of today.  There is about 4 inches on water on the exit causeway 20 feet long.  Max Gs still needs work.

MAn, besides the rocks everywhere, its AWESOME.  Everyone, BE CAREFUL!!  It is like a new trail again.  EVERYTHING IS LOOSE!!!  Soft spots everywhere, rocks in turns and drops.  Climbs are a bit@#.  But man, its nice.  Im dedicating two laps a day to it, get that trail nice and packed for FTF!!!!!  Enjoy.  Great work SWAMP crew!!!!!

I just wanted to say thanks to all that did the work on the trails out there. Me and my friends had a great time on ridgeline it was their first time on that trail. I wish i could get out there to help but its far for me, if only my smallest boy was older I could just take both of them out there and leave momma relaxing at home.

Get out and ride this trail if you haven't been on it since it re-opened -- this trail is one of the best mountain bike trails anywhere.  Period.  Rode it twice this week, and all the hard options are in very good shape.  Not perfect, but very good.  Bring some CERA if you're going to ride it more than twice.

Yep.  I like the blend its got of cardiovascular difficulty along with the technical stuff when you run through the full length of the trail with no breaks.  Similar to Moonscape (my other new favorite) in that regard.

The real challenge is to do all three Nesses, Palmetto/Cable, Northwest, Northeast to Red Shirt, East Meadow, U. Spider, Golf Cart, Canyon, N. Abyss, Sidewinder, SWAMP Thing to Ridgeline exit to Sidewinder-SWAMP Thing, G-Loop, Woods Trail to South East, South West, Palmetto back to parking without running over your tounge.

Yes, S. Abyss and Pandemonium are "musts" to include if we're talking about a total beatdown...

Good point though on G-Loop...I totally forgot about that trail this week, and it was a nice little tester the last time I rode it (right before it was closed).  Will have to add that on the next ride.
