BP Redland Backroad

No. of Reviews: 3

This trail is very rocky and can lead you many places. My friend and I made this up, and hit it a few times a week. You start by going downhill on lots of rocks, so the beginner rider may have difficulty. Coming back up the hill is hard, and you may need to get off at a few places. A bike with shocks is highly recommended for this fun trail. Bring big spray!

Summary:
This trail is very interesting. You can go all over the back area of Redland Woods, and it is all offroad. The rocks make this trail bumpy and hard for balance. You can go to many areas in the area, so try to end up in Emerald Forest. Making the way back is more difficult, but fun, since it is uphill. The directions are accurate, so that is no problem.

Note: There is a gate at the trailhead of the trail. Go around it, it is only to keep cars and trucks off the area without special permission. Bikers are welcome.

Summary:
This trail is awesome! You can go many places and the rocks rock. Going downhill is a challenge, especially with the gravel and rocks. Not recommended for the beginner who isn't willing to put up a fight with gravity. The faster the better, and this trail brings the best out of you. Ride this. Directions were highly accurate
