Consider alternate routes during thaw conditions in spring. This trail is heavily used by drains poorly in the flat spots.

Open again. This trail closes for a week or 2 during freeze-thaw condition. Some sections are flat and have poor drainage, but is heavily used by beginners and most users to return to Galbraith lot.

Start of the trail ha some rock gardens but totally rideable. Easily walkable for beginners. Pretty flowy otherwise. Switchbacks near the end are pretty tight. The “Yellow Brick Road” at the end is really fun but would be pretty intimidating for a beginner.

Trail is in surprisingly great shape considering the weather and time of year. Big word of caution though. This is the first time I’ve ridden the trail since all the trail work this summer. The new “jumps” are way too small and quit dangerous for riding it at the old trail speed. Slow is better.
