Did you go to Swinley in the end? If so how was it? What were the trails like?

The runs are XC and in my opinion but there are only Two or three sections that are good fun with nice flowing jumps and berms, the jumps are basically 6 foot long tables but only a few feet high but you can hit them fast and make them as big as you like as they are on decents,
Some of the better runs are not on the main trail, if you work your way around the red to run number 19 (labyrinth) but dont go into it, go further along past it there are three unmaked (apart from the tire tracks) runs that are 'old swinley' cant remember the names ones called the baby maker another the deer hunter i think, they are like Danbury with some nice jumps in them, you even get people sessioning them on larger rigs with full face lids ? They're a good laugh.

There is a 'freeride' zone and a D/H zone marked on the maps but apart from a couple of drops i've yet to stumble on anything more, a local or much more experienced Swinley rider may be able to help more, it would be great if there was more to ride there !
