    Maybe it has changed but that is not what I would call a good "smooth" trail. I remember it being a ton of unflowy up and down with weird turns and berms that didn't make sense. Who knows, maybe it was just me. Although I got to the bottom right behind a group of guys from Transition (including Lars) and they were as disappointed as I was.

    Starting to dry out here in JH, a few shots from this weekend ride around Snow King & Cache Creek:

    A few from last night... I went over to some new trails in my old neighborhood to take pictures for the local bike group. Not the most gnar singletrack, but the views are killer and it's fun for them to have something close-by.

    ^^^ Such a pleasure to have trails right next to where you live especially of quality like that

    Yep. Plus, my friend (in shot #3) can ride with his 6-yr old without worrying about clogging up the trails or having people run him over.

    Go forth and ride, then bring back pics

    Yeah, really digging what they've done up there. Its less than a 5 minute ride from my house, so I'm out riding most mornings and any afternoon I don't ride elsewhere. Can get about 5-7 miles in a half hour door-to-door. Can't beat that! The tall grass is really making things a ton of fun. They need to work on some of the rollers though. If you like to catch air, there's a ton of them where they're spaced just a little too far apart to create transitions, so it really gives your suspension a workout in all the wrong ways. The berms are pretty well built though.

    Took this Shot of Spats on Monday in between riding Tyrolian and Chimney, both are riding great. Chimney still had a handful of unridable drifts at the top and a couple trees down

    Do you find that trail rides better north to south? Only rode it once, south to north, when I lived in Tahoe. healthy climb, interesting although not exhilarating ride along the side of the lake, then a pretty fun and fast fire road descent. Had some great rides when I lived in North Lake!

    Rode it a few weeks ago and agree on all points. Even think I enjoy the west side trails better than the newer stuff on the east side. But as was already said, can't beat having those right there.

    Agreed. Westside flows better than eastside.

    Rode HiLine today in Sedona. These were taken during the ride, no action shots though.
