Rode Bennett for the first time this year. I am not sure what the big deal is!
The trail was in good shape with nature taking back as much as she can.
A couple observations:
1) I got lost in the "powerline" section. I rode what I thought was the trail from last year, but then when I re-entered the pines, it was a straight (wide) path to the road. I assumed that riders are supposed to turn right there, and rejoin the singletrack. The old trail to left left was still semi-visible, but appears to not be ridden much do to the amount of sticks and stuff on the trail.
2) There may be a Rhino loose in the area, as there are some very large piles of poo in Jungle 2. I didn't have a bulldozer to clear a trail.
3) There is a tree down on the path, Jungle 2, a bit after the huge fallen tree. It looks like people are riding around it, but it should probably be cleared.
4) Northshore is pretty overgrown, and there is a tree down there as well. The second have is very dense, and a little tough to navigate.
Other than a few minor details, it was good to be back out there.
