Rocky switchbacks that open up into straight, fast, and tight singletrack. A good technical challenge on an XC bike. A few nice little wooden booters in the fast sections, with a short climb in the last quarter.

Perfect condition. The person who reported that there are trees down was probably on a different trail.

Significant number of trees down in the forested part of the trail. Passable on feet but not worth attempting on bikes until trail crew goes through
