Head off from the Red Gate or Jade and Juniper Parking Lots and make your way down the Switchbacks and over to kiosk. Once there you need to find 3 rings and head up the classic stone Free. Take a left along the HRT and get in an easy gear to climb Rotten Cabin. From their you can take Fraidy Cat, 36DD, the pond and No Boats back to the kiosk. You then have to either climb up the Swtichbacks and along Wild Earp back to the Red Gate or take Gingerly and Comin' Round the Mountain. Fraidy Cat and 36DD are definitely double black trails, please ride within your limits.

Even after the rain the trail was running pretty good with exception of the ussual wet spots. Did some benching work where the trail was slipping away. Someone cut the trees before me so all is clear at the momment. Please don't poach my tools if you find my backpack up there! Still some drainage work to do.

Cleared out a couple trees. Still lots of branches down and some wet spots starting to erode on the steeper bits but it was all ridable.
