Had a good ride yesterday. Took about an hour to get to the top, which is a little long, but with only four stepoffs I'm feeling pretty good about it.

1-left hand switchback on the very lowest section of trail between 6th ave and the junction that goes back to the parking lot.

2-right hand rocky corner - the famous one above the first crossing of Lookout Mtn Road.

3-last left hand switchback, right by the flat overlook area

4-stupid wrong line just below the rocky outcropping at the top - shouldn't have needed to step off there.

I made all of the batch of switchbacks right by the house with the driveway, which I'm not sure I've ever done before so that must be getting easier (specifically the final left hand one). Other sections of the trail are getting progressively rockier as the years go by.

My downhill wasn't as good. I think I had 6 stepoffs.

Not bad for a 14 yr old hardtail.
