      This trail seems to take the rain very well. A day after the rain and I have seen maybe 2 or 3 pudles. Otherwise, the damp soil keeps the rock in...

      Trail is challenging to climb and you will most likely step of your bike (lose rock on steep sections) a couple of times. But it certainly is...

      Trail is clear. Climb is ride-able for advanced and very fit riders. Some walking by others. That earns a fun and fast descent for intermediate...

       Don't even bother unless you are in halfway decent shape, some spots are technically demanding and will zap your energy, 95% was disable for me, but then I'm 60 year's old, don't have the steam I used to have, plus I road 8.5 miles to get tbere. Not easy to do even if your are somewhat fit and younger, bring your big boy shoets cause this will rip you a new one.

       The best downhill you will get in this trail system. The climb is technical near the top but there is nothing that cannot be cleared. Nice views from the top.

       The trail is in good condition, a little washed out from the rain but nothing too crazy.
