1st, but certainly not last, visit to Walnut Creek. having just moved up here from the flat lands of Florida and reading the previous reviews for this trail, I was curious to see how me and my beloved 26er hard tail would fare.
These trails are excellent and have just the right amount of technical short climbs and fun descents to keep you smiling. For me, there was plenty of flow and while I for sure would have been faster on a full suspension and bigger wheels, I had plenty of fun without it. In fact, even though everyone else was on a 29er (I'm used to this :), I saw zero full suspension rigs.
I had to bunny-hop a rattlesnake down by the creek. it didn't even notice this as it slinked across the trail on the hunt for something, though when I tried to snap a photo, it rattled to me "Not today, buddy."
Suggest that you go "hydration pack," as you will have trouble taking your hands off the bar to get water. Well worth the $4.50 fee for out-of-county residents/visitors. Has a really nice lake for swimming and an incredible disc golf course. Go ride it!
