      Clear cutting of the forest began some time in the winter. Beginning portion of the loop is broken.

      multiple ways to get lost on this trail especially when you encounter a very steep incline which is very well ridden showing that many riders have gotten lost, but there is a ok pump track at the bottom. Very nice trail overall though

      Trail is good, with a little work it could be great. Some dropped trees over parts of the trail, need some technique to bounce them given the trail is tight...lots of chainring scars on them so I wasn’t the first. It can be easy to go off trail..lots of sides and dead ends. An afternoon to lay in some blazes and clear some of the more treacherous tight squeeze
      points may be in order.

      Some rewarding vistas on the Western leg of the loop. Good spot to fuel up. Pack an extra set of lungs for some of the pits.

      About half way into the trail on the opposite side of the ravine, you go down a pretty steep decline to get to the bottom. Zig zaging along the creek bed down in the ravine over/under fallen trees. Fun trail to hike but I don't think I could bike it.

      This trail is pretty fun, although it’s a bit challenging, and very easy to get lost, as there are multiple side trails that lead to nowhere, so you have to backtrack to take the proper path
