Lower trail cleared, in good shape. Upper trail re-route (after left at trail marker) is looser and faint, but route on app will keep you on...

reporter 1-2 downed trees, have to walk over. A few small trees to ride over. Does not look like recent motorized use has occurred. Trail, overall, looks good.

Trail is largely retired at this point for wheeled use. Many downed trees, faint overgrown trail.

Way overgrown, with so much deadfall at the top, you have to stop your bike every 20 feet.

 Bottom is a bit rough due to the creek overflow. Water crossings are still pretty wet with a few mudbogs, but possible to get around. After the first mile or so it's really nice. A bit overgrown up top, but all part of the fun.
