      Hundreds of trees down across trail. It’s going to take an army of people a while to get this trail back up and riding

      Tricky, lots of creek crossings, and many gnarly downhills over rocks and super tech. So it's pretty much normal. Only a little bit dusty.

       Top part of Agate creek is amazing, some of the best single track, but then the trails just becomes okay. Tons of deep stream crossings to interrupt your flow. Green Creek is way more fun.

       Probably the best natural trail I’ve ever ridden. Lots of hand pump. Fast, rocky, technical with whoopties to boot. Multiple (15+) stream crossings so be prepared to be wet. Make sure you go with a partner, it’s fairly remote. Be sure to check out all the old car crashes off of the scree field below 50.
