      Top section is a bit challenging due to water and mud in the very steep section, rest of the trail is great some lose sand bottom but that’s normal

      As everyone else has said, real rutty at the top 1/3rd. Wasps weren't too bad today around 1130, just have to power through them when you come up...

       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.
