The next time you have a chance to ride at Stocksdale you will notice some major enhancements. We have added a number of rollers and berms to the main trail loop.
This will favor riding the trail counterclockwise. So, as you leave the parking lot ride past the kiosk and turn right into the woods. A couple hundred feet in you will find a small berm that sets you up for about 6 rollers (12-18 inch high) that then transition into a quick left sided berm, then a small right berm and then a short distance down a big berm that shoots you out of the woods. As you enter the woods before the pond (Los Cincos) you will find all of those turns bermed.
There are also a series of berms on the far north trail. These are on phase 3 and will favor a clockwise route.
Also watch out for major expansion of the pump track this spring.
I would also like to caution folks to be attentive while riding the berms and rollers, etc. They are there to enhance the trail, but remember Stocksdale is a fairly busy trail and we still need to be courteous and attentive to other users. These features are in areas that will be easily usable by younger kids (that's good) and we get a lot of trail runners and dog walkers. If you are aware of another trail user, skip railing that berm and yell out a nice "hello". You can rail it next time.
A big thanks to the Liberty Parks Department and the Liberty Parks Foundation for making these enhancements possible. You guys should know the City of Liberty is awesome to work with. If you are out there and see a Liberty Parks employee let them know how we appreciate them.
Aaron Browning did the dirt work and Clay Lozier was helping with layout, etc. Nice work guys.
