These trails are completely knarly. They are as fast as you could want with plenty of technical sections and windy singletrack. The STABVT group does a great job keeping them in good shape and keeping the ascending/descending ration perfect.

I don’t know why these trails don’t get used more. Everybody talks about the kingdom trails(which are great) but you go there on the weekend it gets a little busy. The STAB trails by contrast are vacant. I’ll go ride there for six hours plus on a Saturday and see half a dozen people. It is smaller and doesn’t quite have the variety but they are still top notch. The trails are well thought out and drain well. Good mix of climbing and descending. Maybe if they charged more $$ like the kingdom trails they would get used more.

Customer Service

Lots of good routes never have the same ride twice but south ridge always puts a smile on my face
