Eville conditions as of Thursday April 13th. looks fine to ride. the gates on the Forest Roads are still closed so either bike up Eagle.. or drive up Mutton Hollow to the Cell Tower. we rode from Cell back to Rain, Merlin, Sidewinder, Deaddog, and Mesa.. the stuff that was leaf blown last fall, still was pretty clear, Deaddog and Sidewinder didn't appear blown... there are several blow downs there as well. Can't speak to the flow trail on Holiday Valley property, but my best guess is stay off it, there was still patches of snow in areas and I am guessing it's really wet. didn't get over to the Pale ales. mutton, rim, etc. but I am sure those are all fine to ride as well. here's to a great riding season.

On the map. lol
Seriously, Canfield is the old way (back in mtn. bike festival days) to the top through Holimont, I rode from town. KC's is a short trail off the black trail. If you start on the black trail from the tower, its the first right not too far in on the black trail. EVL = My Disneyland.

Long Live the Fest!!

Made it up today in time to get in about an hour and a half ride. Even with yesterday's rain, the trails were dry and in fantastic condition. I caught the upper part of the flow trail by accident as I was riding the upper race loop to get back toward the parking area next to the black trail. It looks like a lot of fun on the downhill and they have reworked a lot of the race loop. I cant wait to try out the flow trail this week only bummer is that you have to grind out from the training center back up the hill. I am curious about KC and canfield? where are they?

Buy the ticket, take the ride. -HST

Currently mud and snow.

fun with fiction.
I rode most of EVL this past weekend, 7 hours of riding. (Canfield, KC, Black, St. Paddy's, South, Mid & North Pales Ales, Rim, Bent Rim, Four Rocks, FLT/White, Rocky's, Mutton Hollow, Buzzard's Breath, Yukon's Lunch, Porcupine, Big Merlin, Dead Dog, Sidewinder, Mesa, Eagle & Flow). Trails were as dry as I've ever seen them even after Friday morning's rainfall. I felt lost trying to find the canfield trail off the new Holimont construction, but eventually found my way to KC's. Thank you WNYMBA for the KC reroute that is awesome. There was a blow down that really interrupted my flow on Bent Rim :-P . It rained pretty good on Monday, but I can't imagine that making much of a difference since it's so dry. Best conditions I've seen in a while, get out & ride!

Long Live the Fest!!
