Bugs here are relentless (I swallowed one Razz ). It's a down and up. Easy ride down with some good speed. A good workout back up.

The trail is open, and relatively flat. It seems to have been recently graded and “paved” near the parking lot, so it is super un-technical

Heads up this is closed at Page Mill trailhead, guessing due to ???? risk

Starts as doubletrack before becoming single track. Not super technical, except for one creek crossing that can be exciting during the winter.

Trail Grizzly Flat
The parallel road to the right (going down) is closer to single track and more interesting, but you still get a lot of descending on an uneventful fire road.

Really quick down and a good start to climb out of the creek on Table Mountain Trail.

Still two large trees down across trail. One at the bottom has a cut out to walk your bike through. The other is about half way down and you’ll have to carry your bike over it.
