BB, This could be used for hiking as well I suppose, which
would open up the park to a larger level of support...and
one major component of making this a park will be helping to
allow the authorities more control in keeping the 3 wheeled
ATV crowd out of this park and some areas adjacent to the
trail ( where they are pissing all the landowners off with
their noise pollution right now).
In keeping with your main point, maybe I should shoot some
footage of a family out for a ride together on this
trail....I could show them doing the cut-outs that allow
them to miss the bridges and bigger drops & short climbs,
etc. ---and edit back and forth between them doing these
sections along with some of the more sane obstacles ridden
by the racer. And I have plenty of "the beauty of the trail"
type footage already.
