As though silver star were following this thread and aiming to please it’s disgruntled participants, they just announced plans to open two trails down attridge. I don’t know what “enduro inspired” quite means, though…

It means they'll have a sucky uphill drag in the middle that kills your enjoyment of the first half of the trail and leaves you too winded to enjoy the second half.

Hopefully they will let us ride Stubby & Roost, without worrying about getting our passes pulled.
And in a perfect world, they didn't add bermz.

I have inside info and first hand experience with both trails. I can confirm the crustiest of us will be pleasantly surprised... new ownership clearly rode 90’s MTB.

That announcer is pretty chill, given what he’s riding.

Stubby looks about the same, but Roost has been totally rerouted/lengthened.
I'll miss the old Roost, but glad we can ride there again without feeling like a criminal.

I know right. Every time I'd sneak over there to hit up Sovereign I'd always look around to see whos watching. lol

I'm guessing buy Enduro flavor they mean once down you have to pedal back to the village.

Not officially yet.

Looks like the two trails are officially opening on Aug 31. It seems they are done but probably don’t want to send the masses down in these dry conditions.

Hopefully they sign them well. I rolled out that way twice last night and ended up on the same one twice with different routes. Signage needed.
