Dani loved the skills section surprisingly when we went to Kettle too. Good warmup for bike handling.

We were there Saturday.
got back to the parking lot about 9:00 pm, Good thing we parked in the shade

On the way back my buddie's leg cramped up on the trail.
while we were stopped We both Heard something Growling in the woods.
so we rode about 500 feet up the trail and heard it again
So we both started talking really Loud and rode our asses out of there n a hurry

Awesome trails up there, didn't quite do the full Monte but did the Maroon, the connectors and Emma.
I'm ready to go back.

I checked out the skills section when I was up there on Friday. Pretty bad ass! I had been meaning to check it out and glad I did. Trails were in awesome shape as well.


Couple pics of the skills section for those who haven't seen it. Plus some other randoms from the ride.

Go and enjoy Palos, trails are in great shape.
Today was a great day to ride, I logged 24 miles.
By 10:20am mountain bike staging area was packed with cars, no empty spot.
