      Lots of trees down. Don't expect a fun rideable experience until cleared. Pretty much clear after the dope on a rope intersection.

       Great trail - old school rowdy tech with lots of features such as elevated log skinnies, ladder bridges and ladder drops. Just a bit too much traversing and climbing for my liking - kills the flow and momentum.

       More of a black than double black. A few old stunts in a state of mild disrepair. Plenty of loan, roots, rocks and fun.

       Not the best trail. Mostly a blue trail, with a few olds stunts (mostly rotted out). Lots of traversing, to a bit of up, to a bit of down. Good to do once but not worth the effort for another lap. Way over graded.
