Fair amount of loose rock mid trail, and a little bushy lower down, could use a tune-up

Absolutely my favourite trail in the region. Beautifully crafted ascent or a perfect roller coaster ride back down.

As noted in even the oldest comments, erosion due to poor drainage,original trail design and the fact the trail is in a clearcut where soil is not replenished causes loose rocky conditions on this multiuse trail.

It does provide good access to other trails where the forest canopy provides a good riding surface.

Also the views are great.

This trail should be retired. Basically washed out with loose rock making it next to impossible to ride up.
