Rockland Preserve

Date: 8/24/14
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Rockland Preserve
Town: Madison
Trail Conditions: Good, dry
Observations/Information: Took a spin at Rockland Sunday PM. Although the parking lot was uncharacteristically empty (just one other car), the trails were in great shape and dry. The other car was owned by a rider who had just moved to the area and had never ridden Rockland before. I gave him a short tour, and he was impressed. I continue to be amazed at how well the trails are holding up. Well maintained also. No grow ins, down trees or trail litter on the trails I rode.

My main reason for riding was to practice my log skinny skills. The skinnies at Rockland seemed to be slipperier and harder to negotiate than they used to be. Maybe they've gotten polished by use and the elements, or maybe I just need more practice on them.

Ride sustainably at Rockland!
