       Recommend that this trail is listed as uphill and downhill The trail need not be up only as it will get a lot of use as a return home route. It is actually an awesome ride downhill.

       Last time I was in there the barriers were down and I met riders going in both directions. Trailforks ridelog activity shows 42 rides recently. and a high percentage of riders go down rather than up as marked on the trail details.
      So yeah, it's open as far as can be determined.

       I edited this trail and extended it to the junction with Upper Baileys. My edit was approved but it's not visible. At the same time I edited Upper Baileys which was approved and it is visible. Confusing!

       Open and fully refurbished. Smooth run with lots of fun sections to pump through on the downhill run. Rode it up and looked like so much fun we rode it back down. A bit dusty after resurface but that will disappear soon.
