Balm Boyette trail ettiquete
« on: December 28, 2012, 08:54:12 AM »
I am new to mountain biking and still a newbee.  My question is for the SW, SE, NE, and NW trails.

Would it be proper ettiquete to ride the trails in a loop fashion as I listed? I just want to make sure I am not running counter traffic on NE and NW trails.  On a related note, would it be okay to ride SST reverse back to the parking lot?

Thanks,

Tom

Hey Tom and welcome,
The trails that you mentioned are all two-way trails so no problem however you choose to ride them.

Tom does bring up a good point. There are a number of one-way trails at Balm that have unmarked exits and the map doesn't indicate one way either. Golf cart and sidewinder both come to mind.

The person(s) responsible hasn't had the balls to publicly admit it yet, but for some reason the person(s) find the need to remove some of the signs.  Can't imagine why one goes to a well maintained trail system and finds the need to alter things either by removing signage or altering trails.
