Trail E

Trail E (Encendedor (Lighter)), another member of The Smoking Section collection, is a glorified goat trail that twists its way down a ridge from Trail ML (Mechero Lado (Side Burner)) to Trail TTT (Toro Toro Toro (Bull Bull Bull)). The upper 2/3rds of the trail challenges with rider-shredding bush branches, a vegetation-covered tread that wiggles to avoid bushes and find a clear line down the hill. The bottom third is a narrow rut that runs through thicker vegetation before the worst-of-it-all exit onto Trail TTT. Consider this one the slightly shorter but rougher-round-the-edges little brother to its Smoking Section collection sibling, Trail T (Tostadora (Toaster)).

    This trail has been destroyed at the bottom by recent construction of a driveway that goes up the ridge the trail runs down. It appears a house is going to be constructed at the top of the driveway. For now it can be ridden but no idea on how the construction team feels about riders. Eventually the trail bottom either needs to be rerouted or it will be a dead-end into somebody’s property wall. 🙁
