Just tackled this track today and can confirm the overgrowth. Lots of walking and pushing through the branches. The trail is there, it just needs some TLC and then this trail would be absolutely epic.

Halfway down after as much trudging through the branches and we could take we saw a saw and some clippers hanging on a tree that someone had left. After that it was free and clear and a really amazing ride for the rest of the time. Fresh cuts to groom the overgrowth back and it was great. Someone is up there working on it but they are o my half done.

The Ride up the fire road is very manageable as well. Would love to get on board with a restoration of this trail!

Trail was at one point probably really fun. Currently, it been taken over by overgrowth after several back to back years of years of neglect. Judging by strava activity, this route had a lot more activity back in '14, '15, and '16. Then for some reason around 2017, people stopped riding the single track.

If people are interested in getting this trail back up in running please post a comment.

Just to add...the trail has two gnarly hike a bike sections which should be re-considered so the entire trail can flow all the way down. I'd be keen to help dig if there is enough interest to give this trail new life.
