Very overgrown, tight ferns, some rooty drops. The climb up is great, with one section that is really difficult to clean, most everyone does the hike-a-bike. The trail opens up to a wide open meadow that is a local favorite area to fatbike late winter. The descent starts from the second meadow near the spring, and rips down through the ferns. Some rotting logs provide little drops and couple loamy power slide sections really make this fun.

Extremely overgrown. Check for ticks when you get back home. One down tree but easy to spot ahead of time

Overgrown vegetation blocks view of trail in multiple spots. Be ready to become a human weed-whacker.

 Ride with caution. Trail is open but, has not been checked for deadfall.

 Best ridden counterclockwise. A bit of hike-a-bike either way, no downed trees. Last part is over grown with soft plants.
