This new trail is both challenging and rewarding with many features along the way that include a Rusty Bed Springs Up and Over, a Dave Francefort Spineline. Hairpin Berm, and many drops and rollers along the way.

Lunch was provided and it was a good recharge to go out do more work.

Approximate Distance (Miles):

A lot of names have been floated around for the name of the new trail.  Wigwam, because of the strange structures found in the area, The Hobbit Hole, Hoochie Koo, Lady Mama, Light My Fuse, so we'll see which one sticks.  I originally liked Hoochie Koo and that's what I am calling it for now, but Light My Fuse, seems more appropriate because the trail is invigorating and each twist and turn, and feature, pushes you to ride it better and better.  (Click here for additional pictures and a better map of how this trail fits in with the park).
