Washed out bridges and bees.

Nice easy loop with many rollers at the East end. Beginners might have to walk some bits.

The trail around the water pump station is great going downhill but a rather technical climb going uphill with occasional ruts which make it more difficult. So I give a green downhill rating and a blue uphill rating.

The last part of the trail, past the Poway Pond access trail, is overgrown and not recommended.
