      Washouts, exposed and loose rocks. Rides like a black/blue-black due to conditions.

      Can anyone tell me if this trail is still rideable? Or is there snow/mud

      Even in the dead of summer the shady aspen grove section stays cool with that good smellin dirt. Always a treat to ride

      With 91% riding this CCW why does the map show it as being ridden in a CW direction?
      I have ridden it 67 times in the CCW direction. You could say it's one of my favorites.

      What a great trail. The people riding it against the grain, not so much. This trail is the only place someone has snarled at me while I am standing over my bike yielding right of way as they climb past me.

      really hard to beat for the area. One of the best. I always see a ton of wild life too. Just be a bit careful with your speed when you do not have a good line of sight. There are a lot of people that run or bike up it too. I usually make is a loop but to each their own
