       When I was over to ride Bunchgrass in July 2014 the segment west of NF 379 through the burn had not been cleared recently. Check with locals or local shops for trail conditions before planning on riding this trail the full length. When fully cleared it will be a tremendous ride. The cleared sections were great fun. Thanks to the local club for the trail maintenance they do for us all.
