      Overgrown, half the time you can’t tell where the trail is, half unbridgeable or unsafe. And definitely no fun. Avoid.

       Unfortunately it is very overgrown at the top to the point the trail is not visible in spots. This trail was a gem for many years, I just hope it can make a come back along with others in Las Trampas that this winter completely blew out...

       The start of the trail is a it difficult to find, but well worth it. Slightly overgrown, but perfect for some controlled two wheel drifts!

       Trail hasn’t been maintenanced for a while. 4-5 short jumps with some big drops into un maintenanced burns.

       The entrance of the trail is now about 15 feet before where the map shown. It is a little overgrown in the first part of the trail, but it was fun riding it. There are 3 small jumps on the trail

       why would you report on an unsanctioned trail...not smart.

      Read the first 3 paragraphs of this article, maybe it will help you get a clue.
