Great trail, super popular and is barely a blue difficulty. You can really get some speed going down but be careful as many folks climb up to save time vs. the road

I find riding up this trail be really easy. But honestly, don't descend down this trail, it is really lame. Climb up this trail to greenslick, so you're getting what you deserve.

Spotted two cubs at the bottom of Ingles Field near the fire road at about 4:15p 5/10 right before the rain came in

Some overgrown vegetation with poison ivy and wet spot (despite the drought)). Still passable and I spotted the machine not too far.
