      There are some construction work but you can spot the trails. A little loose and dusty but not bad

       Perfect trail for an introduction to mountain biking. This is where I typically bring friends to get them exposed. Climb isn't awful, the downhill bit is not so steep that you can't keep control. Some intermediate size features exist here to cut their teeth on.

       New development work taking over the hillside. Damn! They've bulldozed a significant portion of the upper part of the trail. You're better off taking Burn Victim which will connect you to the lower part of the Kona trail which is still accessible. Sucks!

       Today I was told by a fellow biker that part of the the trail has been bulldozed off for construction, I couldn't verify that but was also told that the it will be restored.
