Trail 6 got REALLY bad over the last 3 years, difficulty wise. I ran it on 33s locked rear and cruised it a few years back.  Last summer on 35s locked f/r it almost won lol. Holy rocky rut Batman ;D

Love to see that the work that's being done to the park is being done.  Loved what you guys did with Trail 20, and can't wait to see what Trails 3 and 6 look like now that they're cut back in.  Really making me wish I hadn't sold my rig now!!!

Trail 6 is fun. I would agree, even with 35s its challenging. Its great to see they're being cleared out more

 Yes we have been working on the maps.  You will see some of the newer stuff on them now. when we run out of printed maps we add what we have fixed and added so they get current. I belive that the newest version is on line.

Back in the day trail 3 and 6 were among my favorite to run. We used to use 3 as a warm up and ride all parts of 6. Used to love the tippy squeeze rocks at the intersection.

I'm gonna be there on the 17th, and was hoping to head over to these trails, well 3 anyway, I'm not ready for 6 yet. Anyway they are on the "online" map as green and the PDF version (written description) they are blue, does anyone know if U3 and L3 are in fact still blues? also the map date is May 2010, just curious if its up to date yet, thanks.

L3 has two sections.   One is green, the other blue.  L3, plus Shortcut to A, was recently re-marked so that is correct with the map you get from the office.

U3 started out green years ago and I believe shortly before we were going to bump it up to Blue, all that timbering happened and the trail got "lost" until now.   I have fresh signs for Bernie to put up, those say U3 is blue, but the map still shows it as green.   I seem to recall last time I drove it most of the trail is in fact green but a couple places were sketchy off-camber (Jesus Mary and Joseph were seen!). 

I'll see if we can get the exit, entrance signs put up this weekend and determine which color it should be.

 Thanks Lynn. I will make sure I get the signs up this weekend. U3 isnt to bad I to bad. From the parking lot side would be easier to try since the harder part would be down hill. there is one of camber section about in the middle that has some losse dirt in it. I will run the hole thing this weekend and post how it is and try and get a few fresh pics of the trails.

I am glad there is a lot of interest in these trails.

Me and my buddies ran those hills yesterday from the comp area down to the old office and back up. Pretty tough, but a lot of fun. Thought about Jotters but it was raining and felt a little to risky. We were on 35`s and 37`s.
