just requires an uncommon technique for most trails in this area.
Perfect point.. I was able to get out of work early yesterday "Thanks Pope Francis"  and rode some here in MD, there were a few area's that were pretty steep and more like a ravine than a trail.  I just dismounted and walked them after failing to make it up.  Definitely something that would be doable if I had more time to learn technique for that type of obstacle.  I welcome any new type of obstacle, no shame in walking something until you have the skill or confidence to ride it.  The more variety of technical obstacles we can get close to home the better riders we can be when we travel and ride unfamiliar trails.

Will this area be similar to Indy parks in the 'no night riding' mentality? Or has anybody done this or experienced the take on this from Fishers Parks & Recreation?

Hey Zach,
I was leaving the park one day as it was getting dark and I saw a couple riders just arriving. So there are definitely night riders,  but I can't say anything about Fisher's  Parks and Rec.

Flat Fork Creek is officially open. There are signs on the trail and a map of the park on the shelter wall. To check trail status go to the Fishers park Twitter page. There are plans for more trails and a pump track in the future. If you get out and Ride this new trail please post what you think of it and if you have any ideas for future work please post that also. The parks department seem to be very willing to make this a great place to Ride. Thanks

Rick,


Were you able to ride there today?  If it's dry enough I may try to swing out tomorrow.

The trail is RED and with all the rain forecasted for the next few days it will probably be awhile before the trail is dry enough to Ride

Took a ride out there last week when things were dry.  It's a short track, but has potential.  Did a short aerial video tour of the park for anyone interested.

Trails are currently red. Because of the wet and windy weather there are lots of trees down acrossed the trails that need removed. Please stay off the trails till conditions change.
