Some fairly narrow sections with little room for error, no safe landing available for most of the trail. Watch out for poison oak.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      Nasty ruts and cow stomp bumps. Still decently rideable, but will keep you extra-focused.

      Great condition, not overgrown and fairly loamy with minor mud. A few washouts from overshot turns, but still very rideable.

      Nearly unrideable. Overgrown vegetation. Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps)

       Trail started off fun, kind of like pipeline but more rugged/adventure feel. Not sure if I lost it down low though, as it turned into cow trampled 2-track. Did find a cow trail on the right side of the road which hosts some fun rock/log jumps though. Would recommend as an ad-on trail, but not its own ride.

       Is this trail open? It looks open as you can clearly see it on the climb up. Just wanted to add a loop before hitting Pipeline. Anyone ride recently?

       I rode this trail today. There were no closure signs. The trail is in pretty bad shape though. I walked a lot of it. Several creek crossings are completely washed out. It did have some nice flowy sections though.
