       The perfect example of extremely bad newschool trail building. Random meandering turns, backwards sculpted berms, and way too many grade reversals. Should be completely redone. Even climbs weird.

       Spot on review. Sad how USFS wouldn't use proven local trail designers builders on this one.

       I Agree this trail is an ok climb if Grouse is the goal. More efficient. As a descent it was poorly made. If we are lucky RCR will get involved and improve this trailSmile
