       Remote singletrack. The middle section after you get up on the plateau can be a bit boring when riding south/up. Kind of felt like a road ride, not much there for a modern trail ride. ( Great for bikepacking, covering ground )

      Things did improve when headed down/north - the small corners/curves in trail were a bit more interesting, and the final descent back to the stateline campground was quite fun.

      Pros: no crowds, primitive remote singletrack
      Cons: primitive remote singletrack Wink not a berm in sight!

       Remote and beautiful. We rode from Stateline campground, doing a partial out and back. Fun climb and descent done this way. Didn’t see a soul.

       We rode this south to north and the first 15 miles are fun but not that hard. The trail is clearly marked and easy to follow. There are a few bits to keep you on your toes but nothing that hard. The trail is loose with pone needles or loose rocks so be careful. The drop down to Navajo Trail follows a gully and is quite fun but since this is not a dedicated MTB trail there are plenty of loose and off camber corners. All in all the top section to forrest road 249 is Green

      The final 10 miles are the best and what makes this trail a BLUE. There are lots of descents and punchy climbs down/up loose and ledgy trail sections. Most are make me for an intermediate rider. The last 3 miles are a party! There is a flowy and fast bit through a gully and then the switchbacks to the campground.
