Trail is clear of obstacles, a few ruts and dampness in the heavily treed areas. Otherwise dry, fast and a lot of fun.

 The trail starts on the south side of the Sawmill trail head access road, just as it enters the parking area. After a bit of a dull climb at the start, your in for a long, fun downhill run.
