Lots of roots and rocks, and punchy climbs and descents.

If riding CW, there are numerous gap jumps. Most of them are small but some have janky takeoffs, and there's ride-arounds for all. There's also some very small berms.

You can find flow in many areas if you run trail at speed. If slow is your thing, this trail will likely not be much fun.

 How do we get a map of 286 on here? Obviously it's not a sanctioned trail but it is heavily ridden and quite popular. Also, it should be separated from the Crabtree park and the TORC link removed considering they won't even talk about this trail.

 1.. It would be good to have this. This trail changes so much, Trailforks would help a lot!

 I don't think a map is needed for 286. The area where 286 is at is not that big. Also, the trail rarely, if ever, changes. Go explore.
