Yeah -- I should have given it a second go... I was getting a bit tired and wanting to drive home by the time I got done with the third-ish red, otherwise I would have. Another day, for sure. And it was the first and third stone climbs, I think. There was one that I made on my second attempt, but it wasn't the one after the log pile...

The signage along red was great. I think green's was just as good, but I'm not really remembering it... If yellow and blue get the same it'll be perfect. I had no problems following what was along red, although I do think a couple of witness markers (marker signs that just confirm you are on the right path) would be nice.

Definitely. :) I don't think we've seen each other since that time at Big M... oh... 2011? It's been a while...

There are 2 big trees that are down on the Red Loop as of Saturday 7/12/14. Both trees require you to get off the bike and carry over. I suppose better riders than myself may be able to use the chainring as a 3rd wheel on both, but I prefer not to beat up my bike that much. I forget the mileage, probably miles 3 and 5?? but you can't miss them.
I may grow old, but I will never grow up.
