    Well, it looks like its official. Horses have been given the boot by the local county in this one forest, on certain trails.

    YAY

    Found these new green signs out on the trails today.


    Got home and started to read about it. It sounds like horses are no longer allowed on those trails. There is a little bit of a shit show to get there though...

    I was also reading the actual by-law, and it says in plain text that horses do a lot of trail damage. Almost spit my beer out when I read that, I think thats the first time I've ever read that on anything official to do with trails. And it says that horse riders should kick the poo off the trail! LOL

    Wait wut? Is that a step up? If not I was gonna ask why the landing is so lippy :imstupid:

    The run out for the lander looks like it's uphill though

    The landing is basically flat. There is nothing after it.

    This is the trail leading up to it. That stepup in the pictures above is where they end on. The valley keeps going, but there is shitloads of downed trees to remove.

    The gaps at the end are even bigger now... Pretty much just balls out fast.

    The land isnt crown land, but it is public land under control of the county.

    The trails in those videos are "secret" in an unused section of forest.

    The marked and legal trails are maintained by a small local club; same club mentioned in one of the articles above who had a guy in a gorilla suit handing out beers on the trail. :rofl:


    My bad. Highly recommended to hit the mute button...

    It comes up fast lol.

    There is another trail not in those videos, which is almost vertical; need to hold onto trees to hike down it. Vertical turning dirt trail, that falls into a wooden drop, then followed by two wooden booters... Only know one person who has ridden it.


    I wish I had a good picture of the run in. I slid down it on my ass before taking this.
