It doesn't.  The trail USED to continue along the top of the ridge past the westernmost ravine, then do a particularly precipitous and extremely unsustainable rooty downhill to the same area where Dynamite Road crosses 107th.  Then you went back up an equally difficult ridge and into Zip Tie.  Super techy, super dangerous (know of more than one broken bone that happened on those ridges), but they were fall-line trails and eroded HORRIBLY.

So that is what that hiking trail is called, I always wondered about that one going by the exit of it on dynamite road.  The last time I hiked it there was a big tree down on the ridge before the rooty downhill section between three ravines and dynamite.  How is the scenery if you continue hiking up that ridge beyond dynamite?

I was referring to Mr. Sommer's boat, but that works too.

Where have I seen that paint scheme before? 

Maybe on a Trimble?

It's a horrible climb. Especially with ski boots on

I'm so glad WFG and Palos do not have paved multitrack, a lot of north preserves have them and that kinda ruins it for me.

Hmmm, interesting idea! I've been up there a couple times in the last few years. If I am thinking of the dune you are suggesting, that is a killer climb!

at the very least if it's not satisfactory for you, take it up to the warren dunes next summer and ride it on the sand. I used to do that with my old Skis when they'd wear thin. The backside of the big dune is really the only one steep enough to go down and keep your speed.

Thanks for the feedback! The board has a set of Burton bindings on it already that I have yet to adjust to my liking. I'll make sure it's at least in rideable condition before I take it  to Chestnut or DH. I haven't been to Shred Shop or Windward, but my personal bike & board technician (b/f) knows a lot about that kind of stuff so I wouldn't mind not having that in-store experience if I decide I need to upgrade and choose to buy a new board online. He works out of town all the time, so I have to wait a few more weeks for him to take a look at my new fun-tastic garbage treasure...
