Glen took me out to the roller coaster this morning. That's the area out there around Marshall, just west of the FLT.
We spend a lot of time exploring trails with the goal of figuring out a good loop. Fifteen or so years ago, this area was loopable, and according to Glen, was a popular destination for cross-country riding.
As suburbia sprawled, as it is wont to do, the loop got chopped up. No Trespassing signs have gone up, piles of lumber and cement pilings have been stacked at trail heads, and generally, it's just kind of a pain to loop.
That said, we had a nice time on a pretty cold morning just tooling around, chatting, and exploring.
