Getting forecast...

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
