A nice "easy" wander on the black diamond trails north and south of Beach Pond, roughly 10 miles long with an estimated 920 feet of climbing. The north side of 165 is a lot more mellow with intermittent rock gardens and short climbs. Roughly half of it on gravel roads to help "warm up" the legs for the real fun south of 165- endless rock gardens, slabs, granite spines, short steep climbs and gnarly descents that will make you glad you have a dropper and tire inserts.

Be ready for blow downs- almost all the trails need to feel the sweet tender embrace of a chain saw as there are a lot of trees across the trails and have been for a while. While it's possible to get under/over/around all of them but they do interrupt the flow.

Junctions, there are a lot of junctions and they aren't all marked as to what goes where. Double check your on the correct trail and when in doubt, turn back and try again.

A few trees remain on this trail, but I cleared about dozen on Saturday 12/16. Much more rideable now. Especially the slab run.
