The top half of Natural High is now toast. Very sad to see. It was a great ride in the lower trails. It was short, but packed with stunts of varying difficultly.
I hope someone got the wooden trail sign (the builder, hopefully). I went up tonight and dug the trail marker up, but couldn't see the wooden one in the wreckage.
Hate to see us lose another piece of trail that had sections on it that were very challenging. It was a great trail to help with progression through various types of stunts. These kinds of trails seem to be the ones that are disappearing. Think about what skiing at Whistler would be like if they closed all the black/double black trails? We need to preserve some of those more difficult rides. They are part of what made the shore famous, and they are part of what pushes us to be better riders.
I literally rode Natural High hundreds of times. It was like an old friend. I don't think I'll ever feel that way about a parking lot…
