      The trail is great until you hit the road. There are a few very small patches of mud and snow that can be avoided. It's surprisingly dusty...

      They have this trail closed at the bottom because of COVID-19. B.S if you ask me. You can still get to it at the top

       Great trail in summer or winter (fat biking is nice and smooth when there is snow). I'm just afraid of running into hikers, and the smell of rotten eggs is always a great way to motivate you to go as fast as you can to get out of there.

       Such a blast, especially on the downhill. Try to hit it at a low traffic time.
