    Still not sure if I like that trail. They did a great job of building features and keeping it pretty raw and rough, unlike most newer trails that are like bike paths with a few jumps thrown in. But...

    Stanford Rock is as green as I've ever seen it right now, so good! The big winter (and also '17) definitely took a toll on the trail, seems like less dirt and more rock every time I ride it. Not as...

    Don't get me wrong, lots of fun descents on TRT, I just find it's better to hit those sections and combine with other trails than do a longer TRT ride, or use the less fun descents for climbing to...
