Shitty trails in this area except water tower and 15... Like they're literally made out of horse shit. No flow, mud lakes and horse bumps stay away!

VERY muddy. Some nice technical pieces, but the mud (and billion mosquitoes!!) really detract from the ride.

Pretty muddy even after a very dry month. Find another route. Don't think I would call it intermediate.

Lots of downed trees on the path. Some technical areas and hike a bike sections. If you are a downhill enthusiast might not be the hill for you. Good XC trail if you don't mind getting off your bike here and there.

Super fun flowy trail. Just don’t beer off into the horse trails instead by accident. This trail is well-signed with Wildland trail signs.

Great trail. Super tough on the way out to Saturday Night Lake, it certainly earns it’s black diamond. Pretty trail with lots narrow, side hilly spots. Fun, but still challenging on the way back out.

Rode down this trail after slogging through some of the destroyed trails from heavy horse traffic.
This trail is hard packed and fast!

Rode this trail and it wasn’t even worth the effort, so badly chewed up by horse traffic now you can hardly enjoy a ride.

Pretty muddy today. Might end up ruining the trail if we don’t wait for it to dry out.

What makes this trail a black diamond? Is it very technical or just long and steep?

Long and steep. Not technical at all, it's just a gravel road.

Bikes are only allowed on official trails in the park so going past the road is not permitted. The scramble past the road is not bike friendly anyways though so it's kinda moot regardless of it not being allowed.

This was a tough slog going north to south, would definitely be more fun going the other way.
