Suggest a North Park Ride

Postby nsan26 » Thu Jul 26, 2012 1:30 pm

I am a regular when it comes to riding in the South Hills, and I have pretty much covered every inch of South Park.

Have ridin North Park a few times, but only on the North Ridge trail.

I was looking for something a bit more exciting, or challenging in North Park. I know it's there, just don't know where to start.
I have heard that the Dr. J trail is pretty cool, but I don't know where to start and what color blaze to follow.

Can anyone suggest a starting point and blaze color for the Dr.J trail, or suggest any trails up there worth checking out?

Thanks!

dr j isnt a color blaze. its off the white blaze trail and has a big ass sign at the trail head. if you arent comfortable riding 3' or larger drops, hitting jumps, ladders, rock gardens and steeps you should spend some time in the skills park at the top first. both are easy access from the pie traynor parking lot.
