If descending, expect a rocky more technical ride until the sign. It can all be ridden but might be harder for beginners to descend.

      The first mile or so there are a ton of rocks. It's not an easy ride but the seven miles after that were awesome!

      Several Trees down. Some of the downed trees have logs stacked so you can roll or jump them.

       A bit jumbly and tech for a low end blue rider but doable. Gets much better at the sign.
