      Very over grown with thorns and nettles. Trimming will need to be done before it's fun again.

      Mostly fine but several mud pockets, especially on the upper section.

      The jumps are sucky and it's a mud pit.

      If you ride the features on this trail it is definitely a black diamond IMO, not sure why it got rated a blue.

      All lies. If you want dry boots, look elsewhere.

      Not my favorite trail. The top and bottom are fun but the middle is kinda flat and slow.

      Trail is full of gaps, big and small. All of which have ride arounds. It also has lots of other jumps, bridges, rock features and skinnies. This trail has everything!
