      Really muddy. Enormous amount of horse tracks & poo as well. Avoid until a dry stretch.

       More fun going west to East.

       Agree with other poster that riding west to east (primarily downhill direction) is preferable. Everything on this trail is a fair challenge, but it definitely will challenge your technical riding skills. Don't recommend riding when wet, since for much of the trail, you are riding on roots with the occasional rock garden thrown in.
