Trail builder and maintainer Randy Pruden was prodigious this season, creating a climbing trail called on the northside of Swift Creek called Retroversion, assisting on another new connector trail and building a very difficult technical riding area called Inner Piece, entrance on 2nd half of Trapline. It’s an honest to goodness challenge that involves technical downs and ups. If you ride it with ease, you know you’re in the zone. /ANDRU MCCRACKEN
Deb Iorns climbs up a new trail Retroversion, a sweet new line that helps mountain bikers gain elevation without using the old Swift Creek FSR.
