      Powdery brake bump washboarding. Gorgeous yellow leaves. Very low use on three trips in the past two weeks. 0-4 bikes, 0-4 hikers on trail each time.

      Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps). Braking bumps are pretty bad, especially in the upper section.

       Kissing The Trail mtn bike trail guide rates this trail as "advanced" and I would agree. Has one big rock/root drop section, plenty of exposed sharp turns on rocky terrain and hairpin switchbacks. Saw plenty of users riding uphill, also. Two trees down and deep brake bumps. Very dusty in late summer.
