Rode 6/14/20. Very overgrown. Cleared several downed trees. Came out with some poison ivy. Seems like it would be a great ride otherwise.

I am slowly working on clearing overgrowth and have not gotten to this one yet except for a little on the northern end. Other trails have been cleaned recently, mostly on the upper part of Weeden so far.

Is this trail accessible by anyone or do you have to get on base to ride this one? Thanks!

All the trails in RSA require an access pass. You can get one from them free now by presenting two forms io ID at the visitors center and applying for it...

Trail is very overgrown, and covered with leaves and deadfall. But I did see a set of tire tracks, and Strava has a decent leaderboard, so folks who have base access must ride this trail periodically. But no trailhead or trail markings (just random numbers in trees here and there), and more of a bushwhacking adventure!
