I'd ridden Blue before, but with a group/guide. Also have read lots of threads about favorite rides but it's hard to judge the difficulty and type of route.

Wondering if anyone had any suggestions on some really flowy singletrack at Blue Mountain? Links to threads or further reading are always appreciated.

Something fast and fun to ride. Not ridiculously technical, but jumps or rollovers are loved. Debacle would be considered 'ridiculously technical'.

Thanks

Debacle, My Favorite Trail, and Monster are the three most technical trails. Everything else is pretty flowy and fast with enough tech to keep it interesting and fun all the way. The least technical trails are on the Depew park side: Jekyll and Hyde, and El Capitan.

That's all correct. The only thing I would add is that Upper Sis has absolutely has the best flow in the park. It has a probably a dozen really fast corners, and lots of easy fast sections that feed you into short uphill sections or technical sections.

But I still prefer Debacle, My Favorite Trail and Monster!

Appreciate all the comments, will definitely add in Upper Sis into my loop.

I've heard Monster backwards is a favorite, I'm not sure what that really means. South to North?

I would agree 100% with no one in particular. Ride the monster counter-clockwise. Clockwise doesn't flow well at all in my opinion.

Stinger is fast and FUN. Then hit the SIS trasils. Down to a quick loop in Baileys. Go down to the Maple Ave entrance and hit the last section of Monster to the Depew Trails. Fast Flowy and that is easy 8 to 9 miles.

I think all the trails there have are way flowy, I'm not used to riding rocks like that, but found its what you make of all the rocks and ****.
The firs day I rode there I totally got my ass kicked, then I started to relax.
Plenty of stuff to pump on!
Great flow!
Cant wait to ride there again!

counter clockwise is definitely the way to describe monster,it definitely wraps around a corner. If there's a nice drop off ,over some flat rocks, when leaving the highest rock garden, that's the good direction. Debacle has gotten flowier,but yeah still major tech fest. There's a trail that's lower than monster on the north side , that probabely has the best overall flow, there's optional loop that goes to a peak with a large dh spine of a rock,nice.
