Update 2011 - Its been so long since ive ridden the ridges of penwood state park. I forgot how great the singletrack is here and the views are just stellar in the fall. Much more vert than I remembered but some nice technical ups and downs to make it all worth while. Amazing how little the trail has changed in the past 5 years. Always good times, need to go back and gps a few trails.
Description - Jagged rocks riddled with single track (or vise versa).. Some great ridge riding in this narrow state park.. There are some pretty technically hairy descents, some drops, some switchbacks, lots O logs.., couple log pyramids, and one ramp over log.. Views from the ridge are fantastic..
