      Trail is in great shape, all downed trees are moved, dirt is good, and some brushing and repair has been done from what I can tell!

      Don’t believe the previous post. The trail is in great shape, super fast and flowy.. a ton of fun. A couple of wind fall trees, but nothing...

      Horrible overgrowth, can't see trail, modern bar catchers everywhere, this could be a great trail but lack of maintenance has lead to this trail...

      Trail is in prime condition with only one large tree across the trail near the top. Lots of loam and hero dirt

      Multiple large trees across trail. Mostly near top. We removed several today but we only had a hand saw. Large chainsaw required.

       Trail is in excellent shape. No blow down. Brush along trail is a little heavy in places, but not terrible.

       Smooth flowy singletrack all the way! Can rip the descent or just cruise! Conditions are perfect right now, dirt is really good. Great trail to do an out and back instead of a loop with fsr's. nice gradual climb. Shoulda brought my hard tail.

       Great trail. The start of this should be updated as you. Can’t actually get your car in that far to park. Park at the gate on tweet road then follow the dirt road that goes to the right (there’s a fork right at the gate where you have to park).
