Description

This is a fun 3.5-mile loop that received a technical upgrade in 2017. Now, when riders pass the exit of Upper Earth Day they'll soon encounter a series of large boulder piles. The edges are typically more forgiving, while the center is made up of 12+ inch drops and steps for a real challenge. If you like your trails a little more level, there is a crushed gravel boundary around the edges.

This is after we finished compact around these machine place boulders.  The expert line is center with intermediate, beginner, and crusher stone lines surrounding.  There's plenty of options.

Looking uphill at the 7th rock feature with 3 additional rock features in the background.  Middle Run lacked technical rock gardens so the Trail Spinners manufactured them.  Over 200 tons of Avondale Brown Boulders used.
