      Dry and dusty (until we see thunderstorms again), but in surprisingly decent shape, given the huge amount of traffic this trail has seen this...

      Hero dirt with a few big puddles right after the storm.

       Super fun. Dry and the berms a little rutted, but a nice afternoon blast.

       Fun! Lots of ride arounds if needed. A good mix of uphill with some fun downhill.

       Fantastic trail, the ride to the top wasn't nearly as long as I thought and definitely short enough to do 2 laps. 1 water bottle is more than enough for this ride unless you're a heavy drinker.

       Jack ass has proven to be one of the, if not the most popular trails this spring. It has all the fun features that mountain bikers enjoy, plus it’s easy access and not overly strenuous. These factors unfortunately, I’ve led to an over abundance of use, with often times roadside parking being filled up beyond capacity. Go off hours, or better yet, enjoy one of the many other fun trails in the region!
