MorningI rode the lower trails in the morning, warming up with a quick bomb on the easy Greenway then riding Stepping Stones and Chuck's Corkscrew in both directions.

I turned around here and rode back the way I came...
It was great!
In the afternoon, I rode Sugar Road and the lower trails for starters but they were just boring fire roads. Lodge Spur was a wicked climb but only the tight switchbacks gave me trouble. I learned it was best to lower my seat around these tight curves on a steep climb. Keeping your center of gravity lower helps a lot.
Once around the loop clockwise, I continued on up on Tapline and turned around a little after the series of tight switchbacks photographed below. It started to get dark--I thought rain was coming--so I high tailed it down the mountain, but alas... no rain occurred...
These are great trails!
