      The minor issue, if you dub it minor in your book, is all the shooters in the area. On a weekday probably not so bad, however on the weekend it’s like being in a firefight without a firearm. Use at your own risk. There was, at multiple points, shooters using sections with the trail passing through it as their backstop. Absurd. I personally will not be riding it again.

      Fun river crossing right now, easy to do with rock hop bridge. Rough trail though. Used it to get to Cheapshot and I wouldn’t do it again. Skyline is definitely the way to go.
