Rocky trail that rides harder clockwise with a few rock gardens and harder rocks to climb. Riding it counterclockwise makes it feel slightly more like the rest of the trail system.

Recent rain created a few splashy sections, overall it was a great trail to keep the legs turning.

Generally good shape, little winter debris left over. Trail gets less use, so tread has some grass in a few spots.
