winterfest was my first ride at brimstone and was awesome! for those of you wondering what it's like the trails have it all from easy rides on logging roads, to hillclimbs, muddy holes, deep ruts, and some challanging stuff i really had no business on. but i did anyway since i was with others who were experienced and also had bigger bikes. even they were amazed at what my grizzly 350 pulled off. it was a lot harder for me tho as the short wheel base and length made those red trail boulder climbs and way to deep ruts beat the crap out of me. but, just hang on and keep going! try and keep it on the ground and not lose momentum, lol. as far as enjoyment (vs adrenaline) i liked the blue trails best. great hills, streams, rocks, mud if you want or dry side trails if you choose to go around and ruts that i didn't bottom out sideways in. and the scenery is incredible if you like the woods and overlooks. we even came across deer 3 different times. my favorite trails were #89 (57 ford), #5(coal bank hollar) and 43 up into 44loop(griffy pit). my favorite challenge trail was red #75(indian fork creek trail). just watch out for a wicked root on the second shelf of the hill climb. hopefully it will get cut out. i had a couple spotters pull me down so i wouldn't roll back downhill. that whole trail was a blast. wishing we had tried 75y. now its something to go back to. #50 was more than i wanted to take on but i made it down to the bottom and then back up. i gotta say i doubted my machines ability and my skill level on that one. 49 and 52 were impassable that day. the brimstone rescue guys were riding in to rescue some failed attemptees. (another story...). get yourself a map for 2 bucks and go have a blast!!!! i can't wait to go back. maybe laborday weekend?
