 A bit over grown making it difficult to see obstacles on the trail. Solid ride otherwise.

      Took my kids up to Gibson Jack for their 2nd or 3rd real MTB ride. They're all jocks, but this is new to them. Tommy froze up.

      Great trail conditions from rain 2 days ago. There is a fallen tree across the trail near the top of Gibson Jack.

      Going East from the gate at West Fork counter clockwise up to Gibson Jack gate is dry and clear, no issues. Going West from the West Fork gate still has snow and mud prevalent.

      Effing awesome!! One place where you cross the pass East to West there's still a snow bank that's kind of hard to cross, but it's only like 15' across and your over and on your way down.
