I think the Dream Wizards crew did an excellent job. The update was fun to ride and a few sections pushed my skills and heuvos. I dabbed at the drop/steep rolldown and the then dabbed at the stone whoop dee do roller coaster thingamabob. I wish they had worked on the trail from the greenland entrance down to bottletop. I'm looking forward to riding Ned's even more. Thanks NSMBA and Dream Wizards for the work and logistics that went into updating the trail.
Wayback when, you were able to ride this trail uphill, a tough climb but doable. Now... This trail has seen better days. Its become a rocky mess. I guess all the riders using it as a downhill training run took its toll on it. Maybe time to close it and rehab it.
The Atomic Dustbin is a great trail. Steep sections with a lot of drops, roots, logs, and switchbacks. It was one of the first trails I rode on Seymour Mountain. If you take it easy you should be able to ride the whole trail. The Dustbin is a good trail to practice on. Just be warned when this trail is wet it can get quite nasty. Getting there is a climb. Straight up Old Buck to the powerlines and then to the Mushroom trail. When you come to a fork in the Mushroom trail take the left branch. From this point on it is the Atomic Dustbin. When you reach the bottom you can go left to the powerlines or take a right. After you take the right, look for a trail to your left that leads up to the Bottleneck or Ridge trails.
