Im sure it was only a matter of time before some loser said "I found this great secret trail , but it would be a shame to not tell everyone". You jerk, whats the point of them being secret then?
Let me clear up a few things about this trail network. I built it. Its not a cloverleaf, and it doesnt have any overlapping sections. It also isnt for a "beginner", for if you didnt notice there are several obstacles and snake sections built into the network. Next thing, the "local bike shop just down the road" isnt Bike Beat, its Bikes Unlimited, where I ride out of. Its only natural that the people at that other place would send you to a trail that NO ONE besides me maintains. No Bike beat people have EVER tried to contact me to see if I needed any help. So before anyone goes around thinking that every trail they find needs to be shouted out to the world, do some research and think about the fact that if youre riding along and you are getting a weird feeling that on a remote trail there doesnt ever seem to be any trees down, or leaves built up, or theres fresh dirt work, that it doesnt get that way by itself. Spend your money at the place I spend my money, and I may show you the other 6 miles of hidden trails in the area. By the way, the following IMBA rating scale doesnt allow me to choose multiple categories.

Thanks for sharing--or are you. If this is and exclusive area, not so great for the bike shops business. Or maybe they do not advertise it if it is actually private property developed on the sly. So what are the property taxes running you on all that land you maintain. In any case, it sounds like a great trail network. And if you asked, you might get some help, and make friends, vice warding off people that like the same things as you do. I'm heading to Williamsburg this weekend, and may get to sample your work. What are you thinking to re-name it?
