      Probably a dozen trees down in the top half. Small amounts of ice and snow the whole way.

      As already reported two trees down - one very large. Had a difficult time to even get my bicycle over that very big stump - ending up laying it on...

       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.

       As a climbing trail this is relatively steep for large portions, but is doable for all but one short hike-a-bike. Mostly tree covered so the views are limited but s few nice lookouts.

       Fun trail but not a black. One black move (steep rock chute) other than that blue all day. I prefer trails with more features to keep it interesting (Post Canyon). If you like smooth natural trails, then this is for you. It is fast and flowy with a decent amount of pedaling (which I don’t mind).
