I would never ride it, but then again, I am a pretty casual rider.

The thing that struck me was that one spot had a 10-12 foot section of guard rail...

GoPro wide angle tends to exaggerate look of exposures; all the same, there are some somewhat spooky aspects to that trail.

Nope, I value my life to much.
I can have just as much fun on a trail just like that with no neck breaking drop off...
