      Moderate technical ride, mostly packed dirt/gravel; well groomed. Friendly local MTB’ers assisting riders.

      Minimal poison oak encroachment, some wet spots, and soft sections but good riding conditions overall.

       Excellent flowing trail with several climbs and descents. Not very technical and is perfect for the novice rider.

       Accidentally went CW after coming in from the connector trail, but that direction was fine. Walked several of the steeper parts. Avoid the plants. So many thorns...had to fix 2 flats.

       Clockwise is a better direction. That way you go up the fire roads and down the single track.
