Park under 183A and then just send it. Brakes are a weakness

My route the last few days has been YMCA, Snail, Rim, and DD out-and-back, trying to avoid the BCRT as much as possible. This evening I actually came across quite a few riders on DD. 

That's my usual path too YMCA, Snail, Rim, DD, etc, but does anyone else also include the dock at the YMCA? Try it.PastedGraphic-1.png.e1b5eaca9b3c8b3ac3d3cbf0f38881d3.png

I often end my rides with a climb back up to Snail and do sometimes loop around the lake as indicted in your map, avoiding the archery range of course when there is activity going on there.

Should be good haha. I’ve taken my gravel bike out there, and with the exception of a couple spots, it faired pretty well.

Yea it was no issue. A little rough with the loose spokes, crappy tires and shot fork, but still fun and whips the turns like nothing.

Yes, exactly that. If you go a bit wide to the left, you get routed into going the wrong way. 

Yeah, a buddy of mine did that just today as he didn't know the trail. Lots of people out today.  Ran into quite a few on PP and Picnic.

Any idea what time the gates are shut now?  No big deal there are places to park at night that dont require gates being involved. 

I rode , I think,   Saturday night , but nervous I'd get locked in

Park under 183 a. No gates. Or at Dodge Cattle either in cul de sac (sorry Green) or at the western trail head of Deception on Staked Plains . Or just park in the parking lot of 7-11 if you just wanna ride PP and worried about curfew on gates

Rant, Rode Ankle Biter 3x today (as well as nearby trails) . Ankle Biter was flush with the with families and not your typical trail crowd walking dogs and asking where the waterfall is. Lots of bags of poop trails side and 2 logs removed from accros the trail. I put both back on the first  lap and did it again on the 3rd lap after Karen must have thought her anemic rat of a dog couldn't surmount the 6" tree. Also noticed random hatchet marks on larger trees. Ankle Biter used to be my favorite out of the way trail now it seems like the masses are branching off the BCRT.

I ride that route out to brushy every day, and yea, its getting annoying with people moving the logs. Saw a lot of traffic out there today.

Ha! Good luck fitting your car in my driveway. Seriously though, Dodge Cattle is a good place to park for night riding.

It's given name is Gumdrop. Back when we were going with a Candyland or boardgame theme. We had much more planned. But never done due to things and stuff. People on strava called it ankle bitter. For what reason I have no knowledge. So that trail is known widely as either those 2 names.

I prefer Gumdrop. With a “G” in case you start to learn all the feature names out there.

Fun trail and just techy enough to keep you on your toes while flying around the trees.

I have found that dusk through dark has increasingly less people. The crowds disappear at sundown and the trails are empty so I've been trying to ride at that time lately. BC is a different beast at nite.
