Decent single track up top, but gets overgrown as you get down towards Highway #1. Better to take Eagle Cutuff.

Very overgrown with plenty of knuckle high thistle to take home as a souvenir from your ride.

 Bottom of this trail is a GAUNTLET OF PAIN! Overgrown stinging nettle, impossible to avoid!

 Extremely over grown with grass and thorns. Could be fun if it was trimmed back. Counted about 10 ticks between 2 of us. Some of the trail had to be walked simply due to the thickness of the thorny shrubbery.

 Not sure what I was thinking but decided to go down this today ( hadn’t read the posts ) grass , nettles that have moments of being head high , trail that disappears ( just kept riding and smooshed down the grass ) - I definitely had some sketchy moments where I wondered if it was better for me to turn back but I kept going - let guy know in park kiosk he should probably close trail - he said he had been wondering if they should - yes close - not fun
