Trackset on Dec. 8 but remains (mostly) in excellent condition. The opening climb out of the trailhead is a bit icy from everyone snowplowing the descent but has benefitted from the strong winds blowing fresh snow onto it from the trees. The rest of the trail is primo! (It might be the only trail without issue right now with this warm, dry El Nino winter)

Fun mtb descent. It’s an old road, so temper your expectations. Was also an exciting XC ski when I did it in the winter. It felt more manageable on a bike! There is a creek crossing at the bottom, so be aware of that. Might get wet shoes!
