TR - Moraine State Park

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

rode the most technical trail I have ever ridden in my life yesteday. Rock gardens, logs, log piles, Rock rides skinnys, steeps up and down, off cambered turns, drops. You name it and it was here. its 30 miles of riding packed into 11 miles of Gnar.

 

(sorry for some of the cell phone pics)

 

at moraine this just about as easy the trail gets, and trust me when I say this, this is like all of these pictures dont do this place justice.

 

 

Troy on a steep rock roll down

 

Erae on Pennslyvania slick rock I lied the slickrock section are actually easy to ride so much grip

 

E Rae hoping some logs

 

Jeff riding one of the many low easier to ride bridges

 

Troy leaping like a treefrog over the logs

 

Rock? heck no there is no rock here

 

this is me clearing the second part of the "rockelator" what you cant see is the lead into this which is steeper and twisted, and you cant see the 15 foot drop 2 feet away to my right, and you cant see the left turn right after this to 10 more yards of "rockelator"

 

 

Rae is seeing whats coming down the grapevine

 

The trail builder riding what is actually 4 of these features in a row.

 

the last drop is for sure wheelie droppable once it gets ridden in alittle bit

 

 

ok this is a different day but me and troy both rode this very cool step up

 

this leads to

 

which leads to this

 

then after this there is a 5 foot super steep roll down right over the downed trees onto the roots its really hard to explain hopefully the other pictures get posted soon.

 

and some short videos

 

whens its not rocky there are logs lot of them

 

 

and a really fun rock pump track

Rockelator looks impossible.

the part you see me on I did the first time, the part i am waiting for pictures on is close to impossiable. Its steeper than the first pictures.

 

I was the only one to clear everything, but wasnt able to do part one and 2 together.

funniest picture ever

Looks like a lot of work has been done here. I rode this trail 10-11-12 years ago!

 

Is rockelator near some power lines? Just trying to get some perspective.

 

Well, if you ever get near Beckley, WV....Go to Little Beaver State Park. Awesome rock gardens there!
