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

 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.
