Rockland Preserve

Date: 4/28/15
Report Type: TA Report
Trail Name: Rockland Preserve
Town: Madison
Trail Conditions: Awesome

Observations/Information: I hosted a SLAW (SLow After Work)ride at Rockland Tuesday night and got 4 participants to come with me. We started at the Rt.79 lot and went up the south side of East Loop- the standard route most riders take. We then rode up to the summit station, did Mary's Ghost, the first part of Thunderdome, then Dirt Church, and Darkside. We rode back down to the parking lot the same way we rode up- the southern portion of East Loop. I rarely ride down that trail but it's a fun descent.

The trails were all in great shape, dry, and free of blowdowns or stick litter. I continue to be amazed at how well these trails are holding up considering the use they get, and I attribute that to two things- good design and responsible riding. People stay out when it's wet or muddy and the trails benefit. Thanks to everyone who does that.

All in all a great ride on awesome trails.
