Nice scenery and some good flow sections. Not bad for a multi-use trail.

      Some small drifts still on the Thomas Creek side. They're easily rideable though.

       @WillieB I have done this ride several time and always starting from the Thomas Creek side. However, I was told by a trail builder recently that it was made to be ridden clockwise, starting from Whites Creek. I will try that next.

       I created a YouTube video for the trail in winter. I can't put urls in the comments, but you can search YouTube for "Trail Tour Dry Pond Loop"
