This should be a DH only direction trail - not bi-directional. The top 1/3rd is too steep to ride up.. additionally - I'd call the top 1/3rd 'black' due to grade. Awesome surprise tho if you like steep fall lines.

This is not a blue trail... It's basically a jeep road connector. Should be classified as purple on TF. Still a decent option if you're looking to connect some of the interior lines, though.

Awesome, thanks. I rode once before the gate closed and couldn’t remember.

There are places to park when the gate is closed?

Yep - you'll see 'em from just where paved turns gravel, to a lot near the gate, roadside & up the spur road from the gate toward the hippie compound

This trail is not rideable. Looks to have been closed for some time. Old fall line trail at top.

Rode it this summer, Staire is in great shape. It's gotten a good bit of gnar back.

Was advised a bulldozer with a 9' blade has made it's way down the trail as a poorly executed FS project. From what I can gather, this trail is a NO GO. Anyone who can confirm/deny, post pics/details.
