The best route if you want to pedal SMDA and Crown Point in one long ride. Whiskey on the Rocks optional, and probably not recommended. The ride up Doukhobor Draw after the end of SMDA isn't great (soft, technical, and slow), but it's worth it.

Small drop to table. Super flowy fun trail, even in the blown out moon dust!!

Not getting ridden much so actually pretty good shape. One tree down just waiting for the trail saw I did have with me today. It is about half a klick below Tamarack if climbing up from Patterson.
Awesome

All features on this section in place today. Lots of riders have gone off trail and blown out downhill edge so super narrow and loose.

Jump line on Mega has a bunch of trees down. Tree down after fast S turns early in Death. Did not have trail saw but would have worked on latter. Steep rock roll down, a bit after drop to little step up, has exposed route and hole so watch the wheel suck. Plank feature removed but super dry sketch until rain and work. Trail is super dry and I am sure work be done once we finally get some rain. Just a heads up to keep your head up.
