       I rode this trail on Saturday August 12th, 2017. The trail was in good shape. Really fun trail with small technical aspects and nice flowy downhill parts. Great ride overall. Would ride again.

       As a new visitor I would love a bit more signage on this trail, but otherwise it is a great little cap off to a riding session.
