      As noted by previous commenter, trails were rutted by previous riders riding on wet muddy trails.

      Typical Spring conditions on the JEM. Rutty from cows and people riding on wet trails during the winter.

      I'm not a very great rider, and black trails usually give me a bit of trouble. This was just chunky and a little tight on the corners. Definitely blue.

      I'm a novice rider and this is completely ridable - no drops, no big rocks really. There are 2 tight and exposed corners that you have to navigate but then you can just ease on down. Its very short so it was a great opportunity for me to hike back up and try it a few times till i could nail it. Not a double black at all.

      Yeah, maybe not a double black. A single black at most. It does kind of sneak up on you though, coming right of a really easy section of Jem. Really easy to hike it if you want to.
