Thanks. We got hammered northeast of the trails. But they were mostly spared. Tons of folks out there today, too. Cheers!

I had a chance to ride krug last thursday. Killer trail! I thought I was in shape before I rode lol. I loved the flow and all the bridges. Just fyi tho parts were a little overgrown....mainly the first few miles and there was also a tree down around mile 4. I will ride again and be better prepared for the climbs. Thanks again for the awesome trail!

Thanks for checking it out. We got the first couple miles (the worst stuff) trimmed now. We're hoping to finish it later this week. I'm never prepared for Krug's hills, but I love those fall-line downhill runs!

I bit it pretty good on the chute. To bad nobody was around because I am sure it would have been a pretty good show

The only preparation for the chute would be riding a bobsled track. I'm often surprised at our group rides when several people choose to walk down it. People who have a lot more experience than I.

I know you are not complaining, but (just for conversation) I get more reroute requests for that than anything else. Sure, it's the most unsustainable piece of erosion out there. And it can be even more dangerous when it gets filled in with leaves. But it's so fun. I'll never change it. Unless I put a bridge over the top and corkscrew into it!

Thanks for the tree info again. As of yesterday, the downed trees are cut and nearly all shagginess has been abated.

The CHUTE?

Is that those bowl curves after you go back into the woods after the powerline cut?

OMG no! Don't ever change that! That is one of the awesome at features in any local trail. That section alone makes it more than worth it to make the trip up to Krug!

Walk it!?! NO way! The only times I would walk it would be if it's icy, or if it's leafy and muddy, in which case I pro'ly won't be on the trails anyway.

Definitely would never walk it. Gotta keep obstacles like that and try to ride them. Basically my back tire slid out and I over corrected resulting in a hilarious endo.

My only pucker moment in The Chute was last fall when it was filled with leaves. I followed Blake Hoppe into it (so we were cruising) and all those drops were well hidden. Love it!
