Review 286 trail
Rules, guidelines, and definitions for our TriangleMTB.com trail reviews
The trail reviews should be reviews based on first hand knowledge. If you have never ridden the trail, then ride it before reviewing it.
Obviously, the ratings and reviews should be just that, not big discussions, stuff for sale, or chit chat.
Ratings should be made relative to the other trails in the greater triangle area of North Carolina (listed on our review page).
For example, the "Technical" difficulty rating should be relative to the most technical trail listed on our review page.
There should be no references to other reviews in your review (eg. you should not argue or state disagreement with other reviews).
No profanity or vulgar words or context.
Keep in mind, these reviews are opinions only. One mans pleasure is another mans pain. Take the reviews with a grain of salt.
Please report inappropriate reviews using the link that appears beneath the rating summary of each review.
