Trail ends abruptly into a creek. Many trees down and no trail in many places. Where there was a trail, it was very illogically placed.

Trail was indiscernible in many many places. Over 10+ trees down on the trail and much more maintenance is needed. Definitely do bot go alone and bring extra supplies if riding.
