Rooty, oh so rooty. I guess it depends upon what you are used to riding, for me the roots took the pleasure out of this trail. I think the roots are the only reason to grade this blue.

This is for the Greenway/FFTW area in general. There is a cow & calf moose in the area, the cow is starting to get aggressive, she knocked down & stepped on a hiker yesterday (March 9th). Her calf is quite young so she is in protection mode. If you see them give a wide berth or choose another route.
