      Fun easy trail. Pretty dry right now. Great loop if connected to the River Loop trail.

      Nice single track. A bit sharp angled in the creek crossings which are bone dry right now. Trail not overly dusty. There is a go around trail on right that bypasses a steep dusty ascent near where it meets Nose Dive trail.

      Berms are moon dust and loose. There is one tight berm with rocks in just the wrong place. Expert moves here for sure.
