       Rode Gladwin West last weekend with my daughter. The trail was VERY rooty and had lots of branches and logs across it. Some sections were so heavy with roots that we had to walk them. Felt very pounded afterwards. Will not ride again.

       Fun trail but lots of roots slows you down a lot

       Very rooty with tight trees/turns. Bridges and other features not maintained well.
