      Zero dust and nice dirt from recent rain on the Coyote Loop uphill, Swamp Wells had some small ruts and minor debris from rain running down the trail in some of the steeper straighter downhill sections.

      No trees on the bottom half so it can get warm. No moisture, so some sections are sandy.
