       Greasy and covered with a carpet of leaves. The Earth is less loamy on Frank''s so expect to get a little muddy. There's some trees down in spots from the last blow that we had, to.

       This trail was very sub par. Old school tight turns on most of the trail. The 2nd skinny is so overgrown the downramp is covered in prickles. Was not a fan of this trail personally.

       If you choose to ignore construction signs at the top, take Frank‚Äôs Detour to get back to the road. Clear path all the way down today but you can see where trees are marked for future falling.

       Great trail but needs work on the upper section as areas are becoming over grown.

       Frank's is open to the bottom, including a new connector that takes you to the Hustler exit to Harper Rd. Please follow the arrows and exit where directed. Wesbild has helped TORCA build this section of trail in order to keep riders away from the hairpin corner. Enjoy this new extension!!

       Super awesome fun trail,lots of twists and turns, in great condition, a bit dry and slippery. Has g great log ride (that I ride past) about 4-5 feet high but there is a go around. Definitely a more technical blue with a few challenging parts. Again super fun!

       Franks was in top form today. Dirt wasn't too dry (still some evidence of a puddle about 2/3 of the way down, rocks were sticky as heck, did that log ride tree in the first in third slow-mo to show da missus that I still got it (haha) and those old busted wooden features are GONE, nothing but you and the trail..GREAT job on marking the detour as well.
