      Some people tried to do work on bobsled and messed it up. They cut in water runoff channels that have now made standing water pools. The trail is...

      Top section is getting rutted but is drying out, dirt down lower is great after the rain.

      Still wet and rutted at the top. Hard to ride.

       This trail is amazing and easy to access. I have yet to do a car jump, but I am anticipating the season to come.

       Most fun trail in the area. Fast half pipe like in the summer, still a blast with 5" of fresh snow (bring a fat bike - like my $360 Mongoose Juneau, cheap but effective).

       If the top wasn't so washed out it'd be a great overall trail. Still gave it a 5 star though. Ready fun, high berms all the way down the gully.

       Be careful out there, a rider informed me before o dropped in that there was a bunch of wasps around the creek bed. And he wasn’t wrong, there’s a huge swarm that you either need to bomb through or wear long sleeves for. Other than that what a great run.

       Ran great tonight, didn’t see any bees and jumps are all good. Dust was minimal. ????

       I’ve never seen so many wasps in 1 spot in my life. Right around the first rut drop in the upper 1/3. I don’t know how I didn’t get stung.

       Rode this trail for the first time today and it is in my top 10 non-lift trails.

      Ridiculous, flowy berms, big drops, jumps made out of cars?? What more could you want out of a trail?

      Can’t wait to come back here with a few friends and session the lower section.
