From the Rockbreaker Archive

Straight from the man himself: "That's the trail down to Pelican Island. They are old 3 wheeler / ATV Trails. This is back around 84 or so, when some of the guys would bring out their old 24" wheel single speed BMX race bikes. We would go down the trail so fast you would actually ride up onto the side of the berm. You had to go fast or you would get down into that nasty center line. When you got to the bottom of the hill if you came in too fast you would not be able to stop and you ran into the itch weed. Then you rode as fast as you could to the river to rinse off. They called it a heritage park and made it that it would not be able to be developed. It is near Douglas Rd. and Persimmon. Closest big intersection is New Halls Ferry and Shackleford."
