Trail Sugar Daddy
great climbing trail for riders moving from beginner to intermediate; trail maintains an easy grade with intermediate sections here & there, and becomes easier the higher you get with several spots you can rest carrying your speed, one short rockier section towards the top before the rock bench/lookout

Fun fast trail, flows very well for the majority after the small climb a quarter way in. Many potential natural gaps

Trail Strange Brew
Nice and grippy but, full of horse tracks that make for a bumpy, slow, uncomfortable start to decent. ~2-4 km ?

I did this yesterday. If you like roots and rocks this is the one for you, recommend going up Rangers and down Strange Brew. A few muddy patches but in good condition.

Lots of mud. Not possible to ride without damaging the trail.

Trail Strange Brew
May 14, Trail is in pretty good shape.
Unfortunately can’t say the same for the Baruch’s Corner sign at the top lookout, and the trail-map at the Elbow junction. Somebody thinks that wrecking the signs is fun or something.
Anyway, let’s respect what has been provided for the enjoyment of the area without ruining it for everybody.
