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..

Pre-ride Music:  Aerosmith - Jane's got a gun, or anything by Janes addiction - I suggest nothing shocking though
Total Miles:  I guestimate 15
Nearest Donuts:  Krispee Kream in Tennessee - Thanks Ankle Biter
