Lots of ruts first half downhill. Lots of loose rocks the rest of the way. I'll skip it next time.

 This trail is well worth the effort it takes to get over there and ride it. I had a ton of fun checking on this line. It puts you right out by the top of 3rd divide so you still get to ride that when you are done.
