    Trail preferences

    What's your trail preference? For me personally, I enjoy all trails from easy ones such as the Down East Sunrise Trail to serious goat trail climbs like Schoodic Mountain. I was just told not to run a trail because someone considers it "too rough". Here in Maine, the riders who truly enjoy a good 50/50 mix seem to be in the minority. Either every trail must be a goat trail or a railbed/logging road depending what camp they reside in. It's actually quite comical to read the ongoing debate on certain Maine based FB pages.

    I prefer the extreme trails but if I am on an easy trail , I just speed up to make it fun and exciting.

    I prefer tight technical stuff but a nice, smooth, fast trail can be fun to. Our group has a problem with pushing a little hard on fast trails and sooner or later shit goes south. The fast trails are nice in crap weather.

    I really enjoy a good mix of both. However, we don't seem to have much rocky tech style that I know of. I wish we had more so I could do a ride with a nice balance of the two. I'm just happy to get a chance to ride.

    I'm with you and prefer a mix. I really don't like the rail beds as they are typically extremely dusty but what can you do. Most of our riding from camp offers a good mix. Some rocky not to technical, some tight areas and of course up in the Wind Farm is wide open riding.

    I like tight technical stuff, elevation changes. Of course if the scenery is good I don't care what the terrain is.

    Here in the NE, prefer technical “crawling” w/elevation changes. Fantastic scenery ‘round here.

    I prefer a good mix as well. Unfortunately most of the riding out by me that I can run the wolvy on are well groomed mountain roads, or as I like to call them, FREEWAYS. For me it's a constant rally race. LOL. When I'm wanting technical though we have lots if 50" trails out here though and thats where the quad comes into play.

    My wolverine is only used for hunting, so fastest route to hunting area suits me best. I do like a bit if technical challenge on the way though, and a little adrenaline rush never hurts either.
