Overview

This one is for the intrepid all mountain rider. It makes for a challenging, yet fun, route, incorporating equal measures of old school, narrow, rocky, root-tech, and bermed, fast-flowing downhills. This was designed for a race, but makes a heck of an adventure for skilled riders out for a fun day.
Weddings are often held at Riverside Farm late summer to autumn. Park at Green Trail trailhead or Amee Farm on the other side of town.

Description

Start up the easy-rolling Noodle's Revenge, fun for an uphill, or any trail for that matter. Continue up the old VAST trail and bear left onto Upper Noodles. Cut across the second berm to Rabbit Hole connector, recross the VAST and go up The Rabbit Hole being extremely wary of those who may be speeding down it.

Climb up the top of Tweed to Green Trail and into Zebedee for it's fun twists and turns that go nowhere fast. Make a left and follow the forest road to the top and spectacular views. Continue the semicircle and bear right onto Rolita's Way which merges steeply onto the last section of Roland Run, dancing through a ledgy pine forest. Emerge into the free-flowing Warman and Stonewall.

Continue through and up Luvin It for its first half mile before cutting over to Fusters Trail on the connector trail. After crossing several small ravines, bear left onto Bubba Trail for some good, old-school gnar that doesn't scrimp on the flow. You'll dump onto Fusters Trail for its last, raucous, half mile.

Take a hard right down Escalator and another hard right into Middle Ravine Trail. After crossing the ravine, two quick lefts onto logging roads lead you, briefly, to the banks of the Tweed River. Start climbing again up the Stairs to Riverside Run which continues to the right. A short, sinuous, singletrack, Crazy Mazie brings you back to Riverside Farm.
