    Road black horse fire road to BRP left on parkway to left on spec mine trail (hard to find, its before Montvale overlook) Spec is a blast, fast and for most part smooth. Left on fire road back to start.

    Really cool trail that snakes along the side of a ridge (very narrow), then up a little to ride the ridgeline, and drop way down to a fire road. challenges include plenty of rocks, a very narrow tread, with a high shoulder

    A great trail, in my backyard. Fun for a quick hour loop. Lots of fun flowy singletrack, and some good technical, rocky sections.

    I went down this trail the other day and it was in great condition. Definitely coming back again.
