I'm going to ride Murphy Hanrehan off-road trail tomorrow with Jack Rabbit Slim (a.k.a. Red Thoughts (a.k.a. Jasmac (a.k.a I. Scooter Libby) ) ).
I rode the old trail with the vomity hill many, many times. It was one of my favorite trails in the Twin Cities area. It had one outstanding hill and lots of fun, fast roller-coaster style hills. It had some problems though. I understand the maintenance was too difficult, lots of erosion issues.
So the park system rebuilt it as woodsy, twisty single track. This type of trail building reduces the erosion problems. I'm eager to try it out. I plan to ride my legs off. Maybe Jack Rabbit can pick them up and carry them back to the trail head for me.
I'll try to take some photos and post them. Off-road riding is fun. I feel like an excited little kid.
I'm going to watch out for the Wild Parsnip though.
I made that part up about Jackrabbit Slim being I. Scooter Libby, 'cause he's in jail now, right?
