Trail Crescent
The mud crossings ladders are too short for the pits, makeshift plywood is a poor substitute. A nice beginner trail if you don’t mind walking through large mud holes.

Almost went to hospital due to TTF bridge collapsing into water. This is not safe to ride.

Although it says both directions, for enjoyment and safety, only do it in the SW to NE direction.
