This time it was the one after the rocky drop in D. I just went too slow.

That one takes good concentration and keeping the speed up. Failed many times.

That c loop one is ridiculous, I've only successfully done it once. I just recently figured out the d loop climb, there's a set of rocks in the middle that you can go over. Kind of deceiving.

The entrance to c is the trickiest spot in there for me. Shouldered that leaning tree a while back and don't even bother now.

If the tree wasn't there I'd at least give it a go on the way in. But, to be honest, I'm afraid of falling and breaking something on my bike. The rocks there are large enough that I'd probably fall on the bike, crimping a tube or something.

When I come out from a ride at Highland I feel like applauding. The trail builders that is.

I usually don't have the strength to applaud by the time I get to the end.

Rode early Friday. There's a tree down on B. Its about 1/4 mile after the B-C intersection. Also a big rotten tree down at the start of D.

Trail was absolutely fantastic today and is fantastic this year in general. Thanks to whoever has put so much work into it over the past year or so!

Trail conditions yesterday (6/29) were great. A couple trees down on C that will require chainsaw. First bunch is at 6.5 and next is at 7.7 miles in.
