       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

       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.

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

       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!

       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.
