      Conditions vary from frost heaves to super muddy sections. Walking the steeper sections are almost impassible. Still requires a consistent thaw...

       A really fun and well built trail, but way, WAY over rated in terms of difficulty. More like a blue with a couple optional black bits...

       Agreed. I think it was rated black before a bunch of work was done to it. I'll look into changing the status.
