Nice technical trail but was very greasy and the rocks and roots added to the degree of difficulty

Trail Ridge Run
Better reclassify this trail as a blue after the lumberjacks went through it. If you are one of the “trail stewards” that keep cutting down trees - please stop. There are lots of places in the collingwood area that are for beginner to intermediate. No need to dumb-down three stage.
