Mud hole after mud hole. Mud/dead leaves will slick your tires and completely gum up your chain. Maybe next weekend.

Some sections are pretty muddy, but trail is mostly dry. One section is really badly rutted out as pictured in previous reports, but the rest of the ruts make for a fun rowdy descent.
