Update Dec. 2008.  There is a new trail in the Blackledge area but Please do not ride it. It is located on private property and the land owner is not happy.  Please respect his wish's if you care about mountain bike access in the area.  Spread the word.  Map has been udpated.  See thread in forum for more details.


Directions - Take 384 to exit 4 (highland ave), left at exit (back over highway), right at light down hill (under highway), take immediate right onto birch mountain road, follow birch mountain road for 1.63 miles and take a right onto vella louissa or some crazy name like that (who am I to talk right) anywaygo 2.47 miles and park under power lines (OBEY the no parking signs at the orchard please, and dont eat the pesticide covred apples).. have fun You can also park at the official gay city entrance, im sure you could find
it somehow.

Description - Gay city is located adjacent Case Mountain.  Some similar terrain, but flatter and less technical.. Some great stuff to check out though, even a few challenging sections.  Great place to serenade your girlfriend (or boyfriend (it is gay city)) with spectacular scenery.. Go from gay city to the girl scout camp at case and people will start to talk..
