      Occasional snow at the top. Creek is full. Boise Ridge Road still has a lot of snow that you have to push through if you want to connect to Hard Guy.

       This trail is crazy fun. Starts super fast and flows well. Then keeps flowing with a bunch of creek crossings with skinny bridge options, you can take the bridges or fly through most creeks. Then the latter part opens up again for fast single track. The very end has some short technical climbs. But for the most part this trail all speedy fun!
