Trail is rolling good now. It’s still a little ugly up there but the riding is great. Lots of challenging rocks.

The trail is good, but there has been a lot of rerouting due to the logging going on in the area. The drop at the beginning of the trail is very washed out and full of large rocks, ride at your own risk. Otherwise, the trail is in good condition and will become better as the forest regrows around it.

Being logged hard to navigate and the fun drop at then end is blocked by logs. But when they are done logging the trail should be able to be fixed to about 85%of what it was
