      The trail was great! Pristine at the top! Some dusty, sandy switchbacks in the middle but manageable. Overall, the trail was in great shape!

      Trail was in good shape, though a bit dry with the lack of recent rains. It's a grunt going up Dog River but doable with maybe a bit of a...

       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.
