Got out to the Catawba/New Castle area today with Matt Smith and Kirby Walke to do some riding and check out some sections of the Dragon's Tale course. The leaves up on the ridge are nice and packed down from all the snow and the riding is great. The downhills of Turkey and Deer trails are nice and fast with some tough switchbacks; totally worth the solid climbs to get there.
Cleared some debris off the trail with our hands and a small saw, back with the chainsaw later for some of the big stuff.
A great cold ride with views of McAfee's knob from the ridge!
