Questions

So... what is this trail like? Typical KC rocky stuff or more flowy? Observations on drying out period? Looking to drop in there sometime soon...

Not very technical. Only one shortish section with rocks. The rest is more "open range". Very singlespeed friendly. The SE corner section is pretty tight and twisty, and you can kind of tell they were trying to maximize miles/SF, but it's still fun. When I rode it, it had kind of an "old school" feel, if that makes sense.

Todd is correct...not much tech. Not a lot of rocks out there to work with. As far as the first section being twisty...probably has more to do with that being the first trail we laid out and we didn't really have a good feel for what we were doing. This is a good trail to take kids or new mountain bikers to as they can build confidence and skills in a relatively safe environment. This place is never going to be in the running for best trail system in KC, but for those of us who live down there, it's nice not to have to drive 45 minutes to get to the trail.

Drying time...my observations are quicker than Landahl and not as quick as Wyco.

More importantly, it is far enough south, that quite a few storm systems that hit KC, could either totally miss this place, or drop very little rain.

It's like Krug, and the other St Joe stuff. I can go up and ride Krug, because the rain missed St Joe, when all of the KC stuff is drenched.

Having the St Joe systems, and these new systems in place, really expands the options we have if you are willing to drive for 30mins to an hour.

If people want to check out how much rain they get when it rains, these two stations are the closest:

1-2 miles northwest of the trails:
