Just go fast and tuck under it or lay the bike down and shimmy your way under it...You have to go fast , makes it that much more exciting to ride, just remember that it is there and don't become a Wild E Cyote , you have to pay attention if not then wack, stay focused. It helps if your small like me you can just fit perfectly under it...Otherewise everything else on the trail was perfect, this is one of the days where the dirt Gods made it just right, weather was and is nice so get out there and get you some. The End

7 miles in on main trail? Is that after roller coaster or lake loop or both?  Don't think the main trail is 7 miles... if it is that would be near the parking lot

You can see it coeming out of by the big cylo thing,, it is by the berm section...you can see the tree just forgot it was there when I was riding today and it came up quick on me so I tucked all the way down to my top tube and pumped down right under it and continued my ride. Thought , that was cool but I know it is going to be cut out for you tall people..I would do it but I don't have a chainsaw Sad I really like Sherman) today and maybe for the next few days this place is going to be prime for a good ol fasion hall azz ride...The End

It's on the main loop on the hill above the log ride.

Do what you like. Stop hating people for their riding habits and get back to hating them for their skin color, religion, politics, and sexual orientation.
