These trails are kindof boring, they should make a straight trail that you can see the beginning to the end, then have a huge jump into a lake at the end, that would be for the bunnys

There is an issue with this trail as it turns off at Moena. There has been logging in the area that seems to have obliterated this green trail. I could not ride over the debris field from logging activity.
