      The sign and the top pointed straight into the woods to no apparent trail. Unclear if it was overgrown or what. Didn't find any trail until coming...

      Chewed up badly by motorbikes for first half. Very loose rocks. Not too much fun.

       Around the 2k mark there is an unnamed blue trail that runs parallel to this trail that has two trees down lying at about waist to chest height that need to be removed with a chainsaw.

       It is not a green trail but all blue. There is also tons more trails not marked intersecting with this one and makes it confusing as markage isn't clear. Saw a few dirt bikers on this and trails around. Lots of loose rocks, definetly not for beginners (not a green trail).
