For some awesome info on the development of the creekside trails check out

Check out all 3 articles. Good insight into how much work has gone into the making of those trails. Respect...

How might you know that? Trails that are slated to open should be fine.

Creekside sucks. Best wait three months to try it out.

Went up on Sunday for my first day, and exploded my rear shock by the time I mad to  Smoke and Mirrors on my warmup lap. 8 year old DH bike which has been in set-it-and-forget-it for awhile now. Whoops.

Anyone have 9.5x3.0 shock in good shape for cheap? :)

Going back tomorrow for Creekside with my Slayer. Give us some dirt on Creekside.

Was out of town last weekend... dying to get up there on Sunday for Garbo and Creekside action. Things drying out with the heat this week? 

Anyone notice if roof of Creekside is still overheight for summer and not 2hr restriction like winter?

New Creekside trails were great - really impressed! Delayed Fuse felt like you were riding a loamer on the Shore and Earth Cicrus & Insomnia were really fun blue flow trails - so much speed and flow. Earth Circus especially!
