Some snowy patches but rideable up to where it connects with skid road. Lots of snow above skid road.

 Much harder than expected and quite challenging to ride east to west. Quite technical.

 This is the hardest blue trail I’ve ever ridden. Especially east to west; I had to push my bike.

 Yeah, that was the blackest blue I've ever ridden. However, I had a great time rolling those steps and re enforced stone descents back to parking. Great trail in its own right.
