Like the Bayer's Lake Walls, the bike trail is located behind a massive mega strip mall full of box stores and an industrial park. It's hard to imagine that the scenery I'm going to show you is located behind a Burger King, hence the "Whopper" nic-name.
Since it was mid-winter, trick-riders were in short supply. But there was a lovely waiting area...
The bikers have built "ladders" all over the place. The one below looks like a roller coaster. I'd love to see the bikers whipping around on it.
The ladders presented great opportunities to do agility work with the dogs.
I was amazed at Trey's confidence as he casually traversed obstacles that he'd never dealt with before.
Sometimes he managed stuff much better than I did. At those times, I'd drop his leash and let him forge ahead while I carefully pulled up the rear. Some of the ladders were too high off the ground for my liking.
|Trey looks back, as if encouraging me along.|
A Trey's-eye-view of a downward ladder. Des encouraged him to come down, while I hopped off the side, and scrambled down the hill.

From the top of the boulder we could see a distant lake and miles of rocky, boulder-strewn woods.
. I was fine going up the ladder. Going down wasn't as easy.
|I swear Trey looks like he's checking to see if I'm OK|
The trail led down to the valley floor, and a hydro cut.
We wandered along that for a while and then took another path back up the hill to the car.
We covered less than half of the hillside trails and those on the valley floor probably went on for miles and miles.
Guess where I'm going when the weather warms up ?
