      It’s still a great trail but be aware the ruts are now very deep. Possible to ride clean but requires your A game and commitment.

      Trail is riding utterly poorly atm sadly. Major erosion (major ruts or slumping, large boulders and roots exposed due to erosion)

      Ruts are very deep and scoured out again in the middle third. Really narrow at the bottom and very passel catchy. Lots of loose rock in sections. ...
