 Yesterday was a beautiful day. This route was busy for a Monday off. The trail is in great shape, mostly dry. There are a few big mud pits that I walked around, noticing people trying to ride through, but if you get stuck, you foot will go into the mud past the ankle, so be prepared. The worst spot was the big corner at the beginning of the climb up to the benches. That corner will need to be repaired, as it is no longer banked, it will need either bricking or riprap added to stabilize it. I think riding through the mud will make much worse, so I just walked the bike straight up well before the corner. Mud is very deep there. On the down, there are water spots you go through on Merlin view, so keep your speed up. Braggin Rights in great shape, lots of fun!
