Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
Totally agree. At my local trails there's a tricky drop-off section. I spent a while practicing my manuals so i could nail the section. When I got back to the trails it had been dumbed down! Annoying. I would also argue that 'flow' trails need more maintanance, as beginners often lock up their brakes, and brake in the wrong places, creating braking bumps. The trail builders then have to smooth these out to keep Jim the accountant happy. Much easier to leave trails natural and not worry to much if they get a few ruts
