Gotten pretty washed out lately, and rocky, a lot of hike-a-bike if going up. Going down, this is a really fun and rowdy descent. If you drop off of the GWT it rips down through the trees with a fast and straight lowmy section of pine needles and deadfall. A fun drop onto the road followed by a little jump start off the connection to Bear Canyon.

Little bit of snow at the top which can easily be blasted through if you heading down hill

Excellent and tacky. Tiny spot of snow at the top near GWT, which is easily walked.
