Rode the Burnside technical single track this morning. Had the entire track to myself. Although leaves are on the ground the track is well marked and in good condition. I did miss a turn at about 2 miles that took STRAVA to get me back on track. Other than that I really enjoyed this ride and will definitely be back to visit from Powhatan. If your in the area this is a must ride. Oct 30, 2016
I rode this trail about a month ago. It has its pros and cons like any other. I liked how creative the builder was in using the terrain features to squeeze trail into, its something like the way I have done. I met the builder one night on the highbridge trail, and we chatted a bit before it got dark. Aug 2, 2017
This is probably the hardest trail I have ever ridden. The elev changes in summary are pretty accurate to what the trail does. There are 2 major cons though. The trail folds back on itself so many times you will lose your bearings...if you had to bushwack out youde need a helicopter to guide you. There are no emergency exits, and even though its close to the HBT, its only visible 10% of the ride. Aug 2, 2017
