    No rain, lots of dust when I left around 3:00.

    It started pouring rain a little after 4:00, for at least 30 minutes.

    Had the opportunity to make it out there today and help to some trail work and do some riding. First off- Real nice and real fun to ride.
    There are currently 3 sets of trails. Green,, Wide and flowy--killer for kids. The Blue--which I rode 4 times. Real damn fun. I was skeptical about it but once to the very top I was amazed at high much elevation there was. It is steep and fast--little flowy and jumpy with some killer berms and just pure fun. I would not call the Blue trail technical like we are accustomed to around here but it was fast and fun and after all that is what this is all about.
    The Black trail -I did not ride,,,I walked 1/2 of it and holy cow! you can see the thought and care put into it. Each bump and berm and turm and rock have a purpose. The drops are amazing and smile inducing. I think the plans for this place -if they come to full fruition will be a lot of good times.
    When this place opens officially -it'll be worth it. I am sure kinks need to be worked out but once thats all done it will fun. If camping at Inks--it would be a good side trip. It is close to RPR so yea hitting both in the area is doable. Looking forward to my next rides out there. Kudos to TTP and the builders and thanks to owners.

    GD! What's up with all these jealous haters? I live about a mile from both RPR & Spider Mt. Every time, I drive by Spider Mt. I can see they have done more work. Rarely have I driven by & not seen some guys working. Not only is the lift there now the poles, cables, wheels, & ect are there too. In the last week or so, they've just made a dozer cut down the Mountain.

    I'm sure it will work out. The traffic on Saturday's has gone up 10x in the last few weeks.

    Looking at the last few pages of the thread I don't see any. What's up with that?

    Don't know who the 'CAMP BY' user is.

    These are facts:

    Recent press release states they plan to be open by end Dec.

    Mountain is closed until then.

    Trail Party built the two blacks and we will be racing out there in 2019 and 2020.

    These are opinions:

    Some locals are not excited.

    Some locals can't wait.

    I don't think the park will be fully running before January. Just my personal hunch....
