"Easy Intermediate" trail that serves as a gateway to other areas and trails. Footing can be loose and eroded in spots. Most challenging section is the slope near the truck field, at the back end of the trail. Can get pretty flowy.

      Saw needed for blowdown halfway through the trail (near big field, at bottom of hill). There are now two distinct "splashdown" moments on this...

      reporter Some loose, some dry. However, good news - the large deadfall has now been removed, as have all minor deadfalls.

      reporter Some ideal, some dry - all fun. One large fall with a ridearound, and one smaller one that can be ridden over.
