I rode tonight and had a blast. The trails are almost perfectly dry, except for the flat ballfield section.

This is the first time I've ridden the new reroute stuff  under good conditions and I'm REALLY pleased with the way it turned out. For being so new it feels broken in already, like a pair of your favorite old boots. Congratulations to all involved with the project and I'm proud to have been a part of it.

What are we building next? :)
How bout these?


Just something I came up with during the winter.

I got a chance to ride the new Advanced trail, below the School House. It's a real hoot to ride and has some great flowing berms.....The recent rains are really packing the dirt down nicely.

The new trails are all completed. There isn't new signage yet, so here's a very unoffical, temporary map to get you around for now. The colors used are not physically marked on the trails in any way, shape, or form. I just thought this would help bikers visualize whats at Muscatatuck, because there have been major changes.

-The Green loop hugs the upper developed areas of the park. About half of the trail is all new in the last 2 years.

-The Blue trail is mostly the original trail with two new ravine shortcuts above the river. The longer ravine trails are still in place and show up as the black lines.

-The Red trail is 3/4 new construction. There are great downhill runs both directions.

It's not that big a park, so if you do get turned around it won't be long before you come to a landmark.....One last helpful hint; If you cross a big river and start seeing hunters, you're in Crosley Fish & Wildlife Area and need to head North pronto.
