Looks like a blast to ride!  I'm on vacation next week and will make a point of stopping off there for a ride.  Wish I had something like that closer.

Nice videos! Im not sure because its hard to tell in your video but Im getting fairly big air off those table tops when riding that trail. The rock drop is really fun too, along with that huge corkscrew berm that winds to the right. I have ridden Breeden about 4-5 times now its great in both directions. The rock garden is really tough up or down....haha.

Looks awesome!!  Looks like a lot of downhill, which is great.  Is there a lot of uphill as well?

There is uphill, you have to pay for the downs, but the Potato Run Trail (the return to the top) is a nice grade for climbing and make short work of getting back up to the top.

Would anyone like some pictures of yourself and friends riding? I would like to practice shooting some mountain biking action to add to my portfolio.

Just rode there yesterday and did the new trails for the first time. Great job! Even if you don't air out the jumps, the trail is fun. Potato Run is great as well. Having these trail additions really increases the need/desire to make the drive for me now.

Looks great!  I will be in Ferdinand in two weeks (visiting the parents) so I may head over one day for the first time...it appears on the map now that you can do one big loop? If so what would the mileage be and would one direction be preferable over the other?

You are correct, there is now one big loop, but there are also a number of options available to create a longer ride.

The "big loop" is about ten miles, but would miss much of Rocky Ridge and the upper part of Potato Run. Really, to get the whole experience, it involves riding some parts of the trails twice, or riding both directions. For instance, Breeden Ridge and Potato Run almost need to be ridden both directions, since they are so much fun.

For me, I like the flow riding counter-clockwise down Fire Tower and finishing with a climb up the Group Camp Trail. The descent from the ridge-top pond on Breeden Ridge to Potato Run is a roller-coaster of fun.
