New option on Rollercoaster
« on: November 23, 2009, 09:16:48 PM »
Got to ride the new harder option on Rollercoaster today and it was a challenge.  Needs to be ridden in and needs rain to pack the loose dirt.  One climb was really soft.  It has Art's signature features, Logs.  The turn around the tree is tricky, as is the downhill hairpin turn right after. It will be a nice option after a couple of rains. 
What was I THINKING !!!!!!

Have you guys been working on this lately? Last I knew it wasn't open yet, but I know Art gets out during the week to do some work.

There are logs marking the entrance and the exit.  Art must have been out there last week to finish it.

The entrance is right after you do that drop.  Take a right.

If the trail master Jimmy says it's a great trail it must be good!

You can see it from the 2nd hard option on RC if you look to the right. It was actually a trail  that only a few of us knew about when Alafia was first opened. After all of this rain today it would be Really nice if you waited a couple days to ride it. With it just opening again and all the rain, not riding it wet will help the trail pack in nicely. Please give it a couple days. The trail will thank you for it.
