      At least 15 trees fallen across trail, needs clearing badly. Passable with effort, lots of branches, fallen obstacles on rest of trail...

       Fun loop. The forest section of this trail (east side) is in great shape and rides very well. The other half is in an open area that gets a little choked with brush, but wasn’t bad when we rode it. This section has some rock features that are fun. Nothing hairy at all, but it breaks up the monotony. We rode it ccw and that felt good, though I think it would ride ok either way. Combine this with the Tungsten Mt trail for decent length ride.
