      Great conditions. The area is small. Hard to get much for miles logged!

       Do not go to this place. Not safe.

       Too much trash, homeless, and heard stories of some stuff on the less ridden singletracks.

       It's a very busy trail, lots of people walking and dogs off their leashes. There are some homeless, who are usually harmless. Wouldn't recommend going after dark.

       Ride this trail often as I can ride from my house. Never had an issue with homeless although they are present at times, they keep to themselves. This is a nice downhill portion that fas and has a nice drop that you can jump. A few rocky portion that can flip you if your not careful but fun overall.

       Fun but short little downhill section. Loose and/or rocky in some sections. Occasionally there'll be hikers coming up so good to have a bell and/or watch your speed.
