I rode the all the trails in Elk River’s Hillside Park last Friday and I was stunned at how fun it was. The DirtWirx crew has packed a huge number of challenging technical areas into a twisty 7 miles of fast , switchback-infested singletrack.
And to paraphrase what I wrote yesterday, while Elk River is about 90 minutes from Northfield, it’s very close to the mountain bike park at Elm Creek Park. So a day trip that consisted of a few hours at each park would be saaaaaweeet.
See the large slideshow (recommended) of 40 photos of Hillside’s technical obstacles (taken with my Android’s crappy camera) or SLOW CLICK this small slideshow:
And about halfway through the ride I met Tina, a most amazing sculpture by Sue Seeger:
Please be cool and help look out for her. Thanks — Sue Leeger.
More info and pics can be found by googling: suelandia — tina’s home
See Sue’s November 2010 blog post that chronicles (with many photos) the entire process of creating Tina.
