      You guys…first everyone complained that Radical Dragon should be a black, and then it was made one. Now people are complaining that Happy Hour should be a black. And now you guys are complaining that Dad Bod should be a black? At this rate we’ll have to make all the blues into greens to adjust for inflation.

      Here’s the thing: this is a TECH trail. You can’t compare it to black flow trails. Just because you can get down Evo, Scorpion, etc. by riding around the big features doesn’t mean you’re a solid black rider.

      Go ride Irish Death, Spacewolf, Double Down, or Brown Pow. Those are other black tech trails in the immediate vicinity and they’re all definitely a step up from Dad Bod.

      Lots of roots, drops, and holes. Even a few brief moments of exposire. The lower section gets increasingly technical as you descend and the final stretch before the climb out is really tough. This should be rated a black.

      One of the best natural trails on Galbraith. Should definitely be rated a black as it has more roots and exposure than just about any other black on gabby and there really aren’t ride arounds. Climb out is kinda brutal but can go into Keystone for some good flowy XC.

      Just hit the trail and man this is a legit blue when it's muddy and wet id say black its for sure black if you hike up and hit the rock slab before the trailhead in the rain I was sketchy! I have a video on the trail up check my profile for the link oh like and sub if you like keep shredding!

      Great trail but absolutely needs one-way signage to fend up trailrunners from climbing the trail and endangering riders on the descent.

      Bottom trail was being worked on this past weekend. Upper trail is steep with a lot of large washboarding. The upper is probably the hardest blue on the mountain.

      Fun loam trail, definitely worth the climb out. The upper part is steeper but the lower part is more technical overall. Strong Blue bordering a black
