The Fight Trail trail system is a popular trail system in Spryfield (out side of Halifax) that is receiving major improvements thanks to the great folks at MRWA. There is now two entrances to the trail system, with a third one planned.
I came across a guy (late 20’s/ 30’s) and his dog in the Attic earlier today. As I approached he stated “sorry he can be an asshole” but made no effort to leash the dog or grab his collar.
I smiled and said, “not a problem” assuming he meant his dog would bark, be excitable and maybe even jump up. Instead his dog latched onto my outer thigh and bit me!
I pulled him off with one arm while still riding and then rode away while his dog continued to try to get at me again.
Not a bad bite, seemed to be more of a ‘herding’ bite than an fullbore attack but still enough to break the skin and draw some blood…"
hmmmm…I know where one of these bridges is but can’t picture where you are talking about for a second bridge. The one I am thinking of is hard right,just after a quick smooth rock up. It is wooden and somewhat narrow. There is a rock to aid you in getting on. (hahahaha that is the best I can describe it)
Where is the second bridge? Is there another entrance to the Attic?
I rode the Attic clockwise and there are a few ways out. The way I went takes a hard left onto the first bridge and then straight onto the second bridge and a hard right after it. The two bridges are only a few feet long and are laid one right after the other. A tricky spot at the best of times, without a swarm of angry hornets chasing you.
Trail upgrade courtesy of MRWA build day today. What was a rock drop with a mudhole at the bottom is a nice rock ramp with a layer of dirt over it. I haven’t asked permission to post photos of the people, so I’ve cut them off. Hopefully, they don’t mind their legs showing. I don’t think the dog will mind having his backside displayed.
