Rick...is the West Triple Trail still alternating directions daily or is the plan to just run it downhill? Road it yesterday and the bottom of the ski hill had standing water in the usual places.

probably makes sense to have it downhill only for now. We'll try to sign it soon. Also, when riding across the bottom ride just above the bottom on a two track that takes you to the bunny hill/mid-ropes then you can avoid the puddles

Was planning on this for the first time this weekend. Bummer. Anyway, what direction would downhill mostly be?

Another option would be to turn left after the downhill section (skip the pond section) and take Egypt Valley Rd back up to the connector trail so you can finish the fun swoopy roller coaster before the skills park/Shavers Hill area. That is what I would do next time I rode there.

So I'm confused by the signage out there. Do we still ride the open section of the triple downhill per the signs (Downhill Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) and on the other days start at the base of the ski hill and go up or is is 100% downhill now?

Rode it yesterday and went up the hill while someone was going down and I wasn't sure what was the correct way to go.

Thanks!

Unfortunately a sign has never been put up telling people the West Triple should only be used as a downhill right now.
