The end section of the trail is blown out, lots of narrow deep ruts laced with tree roots, perhaps only rideable by immortals. I suggest peeling off and riding stegosaurus rather than the end of this trail

Pretty overgrown at the start. I'm not local so unsure if this trail gets used anymore. Rode it today though.
