This section of the JEM trail is amazing. The whole ride down is full of fast flowing turns. There are a couple of technical sections but nothing to stress about. Definitely worth the short climb... and definitely worth doing more than one lap!

Pretty much dry, but the cows have made it a really bumpy. It is being worked on to get it smoothed out, but bring your kidney belt.

Bike shop said it was open. Upper half had some spots that were quite muddy. Lower half was all good. Should be completely dry soon

Do not ride this trail if the weather has had moisture in the last week. The trail is saturated and is not draining. It will require a significant...

 Not sure why this Trail get such high reviews I would take my kids on it but that's about all maybe I missed something?

 I don't know how this trail gets such high ratings. If riding through flat sagebrush is you're thing, you'll love it. If you're competent on a bike and looking for a memorable ride, avoid JEM trail. However, it would be a fun trail to ride with my young children.

 When I used to live in the Midwest I thought this trail was awesome. After living out west for a while I came back and found this trail rather flat pedally and boring. If you are an xc guy you will love it. If you are a gravity type rider I'd look for something else

 This trail used to be a high speed buff rally through the sage. As of Fall 2016 it was a rutted mess. I'd recommend Dead Ringer instead for a descent.
