Multi-User 2 WAY TRAIL with bike friendly design. Yield to uphill travel! While most bikes ride down it and loop to the top by going left or right at the bottom, it is not a one-way trail and you will encounter bikes, hikers and horses coming uphill. Good sightlines overall so keep aware and leave your earbuds out. When encountering other users, establish communication, determine the best way to yield, and say Howdy.

      The trail is incredibly dry and choppy. Still fun, but we really really really need some rain!

       Rode Hoot this past Monday 2x + Scotts! Good trail, fun and flow is on point. Long enough, berms are on point, jumps totally smooth...good stuff! Nice change from riding Auburn...I'll be back with friends!

       The Upper portion of some of the switchbacks are getting washed out. I almost washed out on two of them.
      Use caution.

       What’s the trail conditions at the moment? Two weeks ago the dirt was perfect.

       The trail is snowed in and not rideable.

       The first big switchback is sketchy with the dusty dry conditions right now. The trail is banked before leading into the turn and with the dust on top of the hard pack dirt it's very easy to slide out before you even enter the burm
