There are way too many wood chips and sticks on the lower part of the trail, there are also quite a few fallen trees on the trail as well, I rode maple syrup the same day and this trail was significantly more challenging due to the sticks and trees.

Santa, it connects to maple syrup then connects to the flume. Finding the trailhead to maple syrup is the trickiest portion... And it's not bad. All the Ephraim trails end at the flume if wanted.

It’s a lot of fun not very short but there are a lot of fun jumps. You can connect it to the flume when you are going down if when you go over the red dirt area and are heading to a turn there’s a trail that leads of to the flume.

There’s a lot of rocks on the sides of the trails, be careful to not hit your pedals on the rocks. When we went down we hit them a ton.

There are a couple downed trees that will need to be removed. Didn't have a saw with me so I wasn't able to take care of it. Just take it easy.
