I rode Maybury this morning. While there are a few slappers they are far fewer than the other trails I've been on lately. It could use some trimming in a few spots but Maybury is in generally great shape.

Love the new jump too. Nice work.

Rode Saturday afternoon. Trail is in great shape and very fast.

My wife Rita and I rode Maybury Sunday. Trail and weather was absolutely PERFECT. Hats off to who ever has done the trimming out there. The dirt is nice a grippy and fast.
Only complaint is that first climb which I do hope there are plans in the future to reroute. Anybody know?
Maybury is one of our favorite trails and has such a great flow.

That first climb is the only part of the trail that I simply do not like. :x It's been so rutted out for so long that it is no longer enjoyable to ride. I'm all for a re-route and am willing to help.

No way! haha. I love that first climb. It's easy to clear, and provides a nice kick in the pants to get your ride started on cold legs.

However, yeah, I realize it's all rutted out. But, it's been that way for a long time now, doesn't seem too much worse to me this year.

should have seen the old trail before that climb was put there..it went straight at that first turn and went up the side of the hill at about a 45 deg angle and near the top did a 180.

Yeah, whoever designed that first mile there, is a mean, mean person.

I personally think it's fine climbing-wise but the prone-to-erosion bits should probably be considered for reroute.

I haven't been out there today, but we got enough rain that I'd personally choose to avoid riding on it.

The first 1/2~3/4 mile and last 3/4~1 mile of trail could both use some trimming - days that are too wet to ride are great days for riders to trim.

A couple of small puddles, but overall great conditions, great traction. Needs more trimming of course, an ongoing battle.
