I completely agree with you on the fact that Gore's best trails are short
and they do lack in the mogul department...most of the time severely.  The
double barrel run is great and can seem really long if you cross Hawkeye
and continue down under the Straightbrook quad (the Straightbrook Glades
area).  Some good bump lines form down there but they are mixed in with
rocks and the occasional stick poking through.
