      Dry, moon dust in places, vegetation needs to be trimmed back in spots, but not bad. Big meadows of colorful wildflowers right now.

      Don't ride this unless you have to. Not being maintained. You'll have bushes tearing up your shins and the trail itself is torn up by horses and hard to find/follow at certain spots..
