Due to my nephew's schedule, I could not make it to Majestic.  But we made it out to Rocky Gap (in the Allegheny National Forest and 50 minutes West of Majestic Trails):

Conditions were near perfect.  The trails are one-way and the trail traffic was very light (almost all bikes, and just few quads).  I got about 47-48 miles in.  Half the miles on my KTM and half the miles on my KDX.

Coming back, we stopped at Saint Tacos in Nunda.  And wow!  The food was good, which is a rare trait for that region.

Majestic was good. Brandon almost died in an off camber side of a ledge portion of trail after we left Alan and Adam to try more single track.  We covered probably 90% of the trails there. The newly added single track now has intersections in the woods giving more options to get lost. Trails have had a lot of traffic causing ruts and roots. Major props to adam ans alan for doing a nasty down hill section as well as Adam grilling a good lunch.
I was able to do all the technical stuff on the 500, alhough not at race speed, i was able to pull away from Brandon on the qwad  trails

I forgot how fast you can go on those shale trails out there, that shit is awesome. I never left 3-4 gears. I thought the one singletrack section i did was pretty simple, although it was just steep downhill. Alot of downhill braking out there. Brakes and tires go to die at majestic, although the ve33 and 35 had really good hardpack traction too and took minimal damage

Yeah it was awesome.  I first went to Majestic in 2005. This was hands down the fastest i have gone in those trails. 

We arrived at 845.  On the trails by 930.  Loaded up by 215 and we rode the whole loop twice. 

The second time through when it was just Adam and I was ridiculous.   No reason to take breaks and no reason to slow down. The trails are marked A-J and we stopped at the beginning of H.
