So, I have been mobbing the trails in Brown County regularly now. I finished the 4 mi out and back linking what is called Wallnut trail and Limekiln trail here. More of the same as on my last TR, but it's growing on me.

You drive up from the park entrance to an overlook called Hesitation point and from there multiple trails go off. Walnut to one side, Hesitation Point to the other. So, on a hot and humid day (duh... ugh!) I hit it up. At first I am going down a poorly maintained straight down the hill sort of trail. Tree trunks blocking the trail and not much sort of riding. This was where the DH race happened the week before? Well, the other trail was fun. So hiked back up the hill (what a drag in 95 F/% humidity) and, what's that there on the left... a trail. And, on the ground, neon red trail markers from the week before. Well, duh, guess I missed a turn. So, let's check it out...

Headed down what turned out to be more of the fun fast flowey ST, but with a few switchbacks thrown in. And did I mention the lush forrest. These trails are really fast. Think Rocking Horse... just fewer rocks and 8 miles long... just keeps on and on and on...
