A bit more about the constant trail merges and signs. I know the chances are slim but there would have been about 0 possibility of avoiding collisions at some of these areas if there were 2 riders merging at different speeds. Overall the place just felt hazardous above what a trail should.

Am I the only person that wasn't in love with this trail. I was lured there by the ratings and positive comments I've seen on the internet. I did the climb on Level Up, which was fine. Intensity level definitely low. Then to the descent on Little Larch. The main features are steep sections mixed with a few berms. The "jumps" are few and far between and not well groomed or taken care of. There are also multitudes of occasional of tiny drops if they can be called that but they're all about the same with the same placement on the trail. I did take a few of the advanced lines but honestly it was hard to enjoy. Perhaps it was just a bit too rough/wild for me. The constant warning signage for merges etc were distracting. I'd much prefer riding 360 out in Gig Harbor or Tiger Mountain. I rated my experience at Capitol Forest as a 2 of 5.

Awesome trail! Everything rollable so a great trail to build confidence. A bit pedaly towards the bottom so don’t bring your dh bike. The level up trail makes it a great loop.

Must ride at capital forest. Tons of tables and some spicy sections. If you ride the harder stuff, this is a hard blue. If you ride the easy sections only, this is a true blue in my opinion

Super fun with multiple black diamond split offs. There's berms and jumps and some techy roots up top. Then it opens into flow, don't stop push it all the way to the forest the track ends with a couple nice jumps. There are a few floaters and manual pads overall a super nice trail!

Fun trail with quite a bit of variety from top to bottom. I've only ridden it twice (on same day), but I recall steeper terrain with optional jumps at the top, along with a few areas where you can ride a hard or easy line (trail splits), one of which has a sweet log ride I didn't expect. Lower down it gets into some flatter terrain and flow/pump track features, including what appeared to be a newer circular pump track along the way. It then finishes with some nice drop-offs on the runout. I enjoyed this more than I expected to. Good stuff, and a huge shoutout to FOCF not just for the trail build, but also for the excellent signage and rad wood carvings.

trail is clear though a few instances of vegetation growing into trail corridor. The section by the creek is whooped out with a fair amount of standing water/mud in the low spots. No crazy deep holes but that area seems to hold water longer.
