Good news for those DH riders out there. The DH trail has recently been upgraded and maintained by a bunch of enthusiasts. Still has some features on it that require care so take it easy the first run. (May 25/1Cool

      Both logs are cut, as well as a couple of dead hazard trees. Could use a fan rake someday maybe, not for the leaves but for the sicks and bark.

      Lower trail has tress down at a pretty fast section right after a small jump - almost no room to stop so please use caution.

      All clear. Fun trail worthy of more traffic. Watch your speed on your first descent - there are one or two doubles that are a bit obscured.

       Can someone put this trail as no longer closed as it has been re-done?
