I’m going to see how many old RG references I can bring back.


Nice!

Call me a dick, but you probably don't like the Hick because you got lost and/or you don't like mountain biking.

Looks like I’m taking a beating for not liking Hickory Glem. I'm sorry for my post. What I should have said is Hickory Glen doesn’t suit me due to my poor bike handling skills and your right I do get lost every time I go there. I will still show up there a few times per year. I hope you can forgive me for my stupid comments.

It’s all good. It is my home trail and I ride there....often. It isn’t too well marked. If you want a tour sometime, let me know.

Have been following, and ironically just asked Felix about Hickory Glen. I have never ridden there, but if you're open to taking a few of us through, I'd be interested.

I’d probably like it much more if I had a tour. It’s very confusing.

It is a confusing trail. It took me a few tries to sorta get it down where I only got partially turned around. All the same, it’s a fun trail once you get the hang of it! Oh and since many seem to also be struggling with grammar:

Sorry! I should have put a SR10 at the end as I was of course kidding... carry on with the horrible spelling.

For sure, I'm up for some company. I rode at lunch today. Down to one muddy spot.
Some new direction signs were added last year which help but it can still be confusing when you pop out onto the paved path.

I too am familiar with the hick and would be willing to give a tour. Either by leading to running sweep.

The hick is a great trail for early spring and fall riding as it drains better than most trails and is ready after the winter quicker.

First ride at Hickory this morning, trail was in GREAT shape! 1 large tree down that required getting off and ducking under, 2 soft spots that look like they're probably always wet, otherwise nice and tacky even with the leaf cover.

I don't understand the hate? I thought it was a fun, albeit short, trail. Signage is a little tough to follow in a spot or two but once you figure out the flow it's good to go.
