NEW, NEW -- Note Regarding The Rock Sports Complex/Crystal Ridge-  

The Rock Sports Complex, formerly Crystal Ridge, now includes a gravity park with chairlift accessed runs. MOST of the Rock is no longer free to ride-- trail passes are required. The Rock trail builders did redesign trails  in Mangan Woods (Alpha Trail) on the County Park land with a new climb and descent, both of which are free.

 The Alpha Trail remains open when dry with a route returning from the bottom of the old Craters line back  to Alpha Trail return along the river. . Please respect all closures.

As always, ride with caution and RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

As with all trails, DO NOT RIDE WHEN TRAILS ARE WET OR CLOSED.

LOCAL TRAIL CONDITIONS ARE NOW UPDATED VIA TWITTER You can use Twitter to get updates texted directly to your phone. Ask your computer savvy friend.. (s)he' ll explain it to you. http://twitter.com/Metro_IMBA
