Just received my bash plates. Time to challenge this route. Its mostly gnarly rocks & boulders and is a solid B route, ie. not big bike friendly.
Trip report from earlier this season:
I could meet any rider at the Esso at Barnet and IOCO Wednesday evening.
Not looking for the mud pits, but I know where there are
Furthermore, I was poking around Eagle Ridge this past weekend and came to the end of the main road under the powerlines. (Circled in Rainbow)
There are definitely trails that head down the hill which looked rather enticing. I've been trying to research this area since then and it seems this may be the trailhead for the Academy and Eagle bluff trails? Can anyone confirm this and are insured dual sports allowed? I do not want to head down them to find out they've had a lot of sweat and tears put into them by our fellow mountain bikers. Coming back up them would tear up any structures I'm sure.
