80% great single track trail, it is getting wider with more use though. Trail rides well both directions but some portions of the climbing is steep and the rock garden is challenging. The Blue rating may be deceiving as it is a tough climb, especially near the top when the air thins out. You will encounter a variety of terrains on this ride, roots, large rock boulders, smooth flow, log bridges, a mud bog, steep climbs, and a dry flume.

Great condition! I'd guess peak fall colors will be in two weeks or so.

Trail in very good condition. There are some wet spots near stream crossings (one a bit of a muddy bog for a few feet), but the main trail is dry.
