The MTB Project database is full of black and double black diamond trails… Nearly 7,000 to be exact.
This got me thinking about the sections of “unrideable” trail I hear lore of every time I visit a new location. Maybe there are a handful of locals who can clean these burly trails, but for most, conquering them remains a fleeting dream.
