       Awesome trail. Love the work done. Nice flow great tec. I rode this trail for the first time yesterday. I bailed hard at the monster rock feature. Broke 3 ribs! No explanation just a bad day. I'll be back to send it soon I hope. Ride safe everyone.

       Another good Seymour ride. Connects well with Forever and HSL if your goal is to make it to Hiyanas or Riverside Dr.

       September 8, 2019. Suspicious behaviour somewhere around the TTF cedar plank skinny. Some guy 20 ft off the trail to the right digging a hole with a shovel behind a fallen log. Had a black dog and bright yellow rain gear. Definitely not trail crew. Seemed very strange. Not trail crew, wasn't anywhere near a trail. Heads up.
