Post Canyon MTB Trail Report for April 2009
Boys and Girls, Men and Ladies- Its time to announce the trail report for the MTB 'dedicated' trails. Here we go!
Snow is reported to be just above the 2 Chairs 2 and Blind Mice FR Trails. Be warned if you come down Binns Road Drop Off- could be nutty in the shade.
2 Chairs 2- Buff, Raked and Clean! OPEN.
3 Blind Mice- (New Trail!) 14 features with several snaking berms. Buffed, Raked and Clean! OPEN.
X Chourus X Buffed, Raked and Clean (there was a tree down above the rounda-bout, removed recently) OPEN.
FMX Jump Line- Right side is closed and under repair, all stunts are shut down. Leftside is OPEN!
Borderline- SNOW! CLOSED!
Egghunt- Raking is planned, its ride-able, 'Barn Door' is clear of snow. 'Never-ending Skinny' is still there- solid as ever. OPEN!
Extended Play- Fully re-born, 2nd Jump has added dirt and not so 'lippy' anymore- Hardtails are seen up there ripping it alongside FR/DH bikes- Best 24 seconds in Post Canyon. OPEN!
8-Track- New re-route is done, trail is OPEN!
Lower GP- Lots of work on GP going on, New re-route after 3 jumps into some sweet berms, step down's are going to change, ladder drop is closed and rotten, heard its coming down this evening for a new dirt jump over the tree. (HELL YEAH!) Lower step up is now allot safer and won't buck anyone anymore....then all the way down to Blue Car is the new sweet section of trail- lots going on there too. Its OPEN, but ride aware.
8-Track 'Basement'- Once again, the old lowest part of the OG 8-track is now open again and it now connects with a re-route to 'Sunday Driver' (Unofficial Name, if your riding behind a DH rig) to the SE corner of 'Family Man Skills Loop.'
Spag-Factory- (XC Route to Mitchell Ridge from Blue Car junction) Open, with re-routing up the 'Post Flats' ATV Staging Area. Only 15 minutes to 'Frankenstein' and another 3 minutes your at 'Postal and High Ball'.
Drop Out- Upper trail has new drop and updated first corner, rest of trail is open until you see the giant wallride. Most likely you will see Chris Elsmore diligently building a huge left turning wallride dubbed to be the largest wood structure in Post Canyon. Its OPEN, but ride with care!!!
Middle School- Perfect, OPEN!
Frankenstein- The only trail we advise for 'Experts and Pro' level riders. Armor and balls of steel required to safely make it to 'Seven Streams' in one piece. Several projects going on- At this time- TRAIL IS 80% OPEN.
East Jesus- No longer there- Decommissioned on April 13th 2009.
Postal and High Ball- Both are old, run-down, and lots of debris everywhere- currently under a full rennovation, CLOSED!
Family Man Skills Loop- OPEN! Work is progressing along on the added 'Rhythm Trail' Pumptrack and should be complete by middle of May for the next GFRA Trail report!
If I missed anything, feel free to leave a comment below. Donations of material, clean fill dirt, and financial contributions are always welcome. Contact the area builders at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your bike 'karma!' Ride aware, ride with care.
