Pretty major breaking bumps towards the top. Berms have been really washed out and need some work. It’s pretty loose, and sandy at parts.

Loose at parts, needs a little rain. In great condition, and still a great trail.

Pretty dry with decent size brake bumps at the top of the trail. Also watch out for the cactus, both my friend and I fell into it and it sucked....

 As of a week or so ago, this trail is shut down. A group of about 50 riders and growing are fighting this and they please ask to not vandalize or jump the fence in hopes of getting the trail back legally.
