Powell MCP

I know it was mentioned when it first opened up for weekend riding instead of just once or twice a year for AMSA family ride weekends but I felt it was worth mentioning again.

Zach and his family have added some new trail over the last year, its now a 5 mile loop.

The last 3 times I have been out there I have basically had the place to myself, with only 2 or 3 other riders on the property.

Today Sam and I had the place from 8:30 when we arrived unit 1pm when we left by ourselves. One guy showed up as we finished our last loop.

Hard to beat for a $20 dollar fee to ride not as big as Hidden Falls, Zars or some of the other areas but almost no rocks good soil and a good mix of open and tight woods sections.

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Powell MCP

Open, have a couple of friends headed that way. I'm still recovering so I can't meet them.

Re: Powell MCP

Anyone know if this place is still open for weekend riding? Their FB page has not been updated in a while.

Thanks

Re: Powell MCP

My guess is after all the rain the past few weeks they will let it dry out for an extra week this week.

Give Zach a call yes they are open every weekend depending on rainfall. It is their family property so they do not open after large rains as they don't want it torn up.

They had some guys come in a year ago and do a lot of road damage in their pickups just because it was wet and they decided to get out and play mud racers in their trucks.

Great Family that has been moto friendly to single track riders for over 20 years hosting events at their property through various organizations.
