Any part in a creek bed has been decimated by all the rain and is not worth riding right now - needs some trailwork love in a major way.

Hiking Gateway access and currently on windmill. Really nice trail secluded. I do not have a mountain bike but if I did, I think this would be a great trail!

Hiking the trail this morning. Agree with the comment about a lot of hiking if you’re heading east. Almost all uphill. Most mountain bikers are also hiking
