Rapid descent, with lots of deep ruts and roots. Some particularly steep sections, bordered by deep ruts which are very treacherous -- choose your line wisely

      Ruts are fun! One of the few mildly technical trails on the mendo coast. This is why you have suspension! Can easily be ridden on a hard tail.

       This is really just an old.rutted out skid trail. One of the more technical trails on the coast, but really not too technical! It can be easy to get lost at the bottom, bring your GPS.

       Nothing special about this trail. It's an old, rutted out two-track that isn't very exciting.
