    Probably the most DH -ish trail there. And definitely the chunkiest!

    Looks quite narrow, and exposed. Worse than Boy Scout (?) I love going fast. I love chunky trails. I don't love going fast on narrow exposed trails. I be tip-toeing!

    Its a couple steps up from BoyScout. Always worry about cutting a tire on that one....

    Looks like fun....I'll have to hit it up next time. Still don't see a need to drag the squishy bike out there though.

    I actually think everything out there is perfect for the SS....except for Acorn Trail. Nothing steep, nothing super loose or technical.

    I must be a wimp. If it's not paved I want full suspension.

    The bottom didnt look to be more than 75 feet down with plenty of trees to break your fall. Or neck.

    And that trail is at least 18 inches wide. My tires only need 2.5. Looks fun!!:thumbsup:

    Yup on a spot that would have done the same if I was on the Hightower.

    In that brief moment....no amount of talent was going to save me. Too much happening too fast, with no time to react. I think on the Hightower it would have been worse, cause we would have been going much faster....and the rebound adjuster on the bottom of my 36 is lower than on my Revelation. So who knows. :oops:

    And I watched this :poop: happen. Just into the shade and dust. If @mtnbikej wouldn't have crashed I would have.

    Actually, the part that made @herzalot slow down was pretty narrow... Well under a foot. And not stable. The rest of the trail is fast and flowy! Not my favorite out there, but that's only because there are so many good ones to choose from.

    I ended a sentence with a preposition. Let the grammar Nazis commence firing! :p

    Nahhh, Mark may indeed have more courage on loose, narrow, exposed singletrack descents, who knows?
