      Lots of snow near the top and very muddy everywhere else. Runoff from snow melt is still flowing down much of the trail surface.

      Well packed and riding great. This trail is groomed by a few locals, so it is in especially great condition. Please stay alert and yield to...

      Snow, ice, and mud. Lots of water flowing down from the hills, still rideable (this is an ATV trail) but expect very wet and muddy conditions.
