Planning a trip out this year! Haven't been for 6 years..

What's the craziest newest stuff in terms of wood features and trails?
Anything been closed down or retired aside from the freight train container?

Top 5 favourite features in the bike park?



For me top 5 is still the classics like Schleyer, A-Line, Detroit Rock City, In Deep and No Joke.

I agree w/ you all the originals are still my favorites in WBP, bunch of great new stuff also though...

Apparently the roof is rotting away and unsafe to be on top. One of the guys on this forum is on the trail crew and he's been great keeping us posted on trail changes and reasonings for such.

What about fade to black? Is it still there?

No wood on crack addict anymore?

Fade to black is still there. Crack addict is now called polp fiction and still has the skinny. Dirt Merchant is one of my favorite trails, Schlyer is also really fun.

Particularly the trails closer to Creekside. Still a ton of blowdown on lower West Side trails and Alpine trails too. Zappas are good to go for the most part
