Paul, Huf, Kirk, Do we need to look and see if there needs to be "an option" for people that don't feel secure enough to ride over the logs... I noticed the other day (2pm-ish) that a dad and his son stopped to "step over" one of the logs.. this caused a problem because someone was on a "hot Lap" and wasn't happy about having to slow down... they blew pass the kid right before the log and barely missed the dad after the log...

It's not a bad idea to have options on a trail.   On the other hand, it's not always practical.   Again, it's an intermediate trail, so expect some challenges.  If someone is on what you call a "hot lap," this someone should have the skillset to slow down and be courtesy to another rider.   We can't micromanage everyone's ability to have common sense though.

I am with Huff on this and if I am tired I get off my bike for the log overs and tabletop. If a hot shot is not considerate enough to slow down that person needs to practice his/her trail edicate! The trail is an intermediate skill level so relax and learn the trail flow and be kind and curtious to one another out there on the trail! ;D

That's sad, I hate to even hear that happening.  It absolutely irks me to no end. >:(
Spelling and grammatical errors are beyond my control, it's the way I'm wired.

reroutes to accommodate 29'ers should not be allowed either. If the trail is too technical for a 29er get a 26er they work every time! ;D

This may be a silly question but what would be too technical for a 29er on this trail?  ???

8).. I have a 29er too, but prefer the 26er as my race bike. But you can call me technical, I won't mind. :D

Good people...let's not besmirch the Schoen Creek threads with the pointless argument on which wheel size is correct.   Anything from a 29er to a 20" BMX bike is welcomed at Schoen Creek.

I have yet to encounter a section that is too technical for a 29er. Too technical for my abilities, yes. Too technical for the 29er, no. It just may seem that way because you are carrying way more speed on a 29er  :o
