      It’s not even a trail anymore. It got washed out and half of the trail got washed away

      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.
