Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps) typical overgrown vegetation isn't a big deal. however, about .50 above the bridge over North Fork of Gibson, the trail is (was) covered with grass and under that grass, part of the trail has eroded (gibson mountain side). im sure a few bikers have hit it and ended up on the ground. it sent me flying when i hit it while running. i tore out the grass that was hidingthe trail, but still a hazard to watch out for.
