Great condition considering the recent snow. Trail is mostly dry/tacky with a number of puddles on the west descent. Most of the snow and ice is on Braggin. Bring a change of clothes—you will get very wet! ????

Great conditions considering the recent snow fall. Currently wet, muddy, snowy, icy, tacky, and dry. Totally doable on a skinny bike. Didn’t have to dismount once. Most of the snow and ice is on Braggin; very little on both sides of Merlin. Bring a change of clothes for the drive home. ????
