      Despite recent rainfall trail solid and in great shape. Occasional puddle/mudpits at bottom of descents/low lying areas. Nothing major

       After climbing back up to the suspension bridge, the trail is fast and flowy all the way to the crossing at the Spray Lakes Rd.

       Downhill flow in conifers. Shuttle from NW (Chester or Sawmill) for more downhill than up. Very fun and beautiful ride.

       Is some limited gravel parking on the north and south side of 742 at the trail crossing.
