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.

Upper hoot is blown out. Middle and lower are ok other than braking bumps into the tight berms and the berms are very loose. The straights are...

Wow, upper trail was logged extensively. Very different feel to the upper trail now. I anticipate this section will become extremely dry now...

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

 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
