Technically a fireroad, but more like a wide single track. Out and back for 7.5 miles total. For the most part the trail is in very good shape with good sight lines so it can support a bit of speed

For every nice long downhill, there is an equivalent uphill right after it. But don't despair, on the way back all those uphills become downhills.

Heavy rains can result in some washouts and ruts in the track.

      Very wet today but completely rideable with some minor mud at the bottom of hills where there are feeder streams.

      Some erosion in spots and many branches/logs down, but overall okay. Didn't slow me down too much. Not for new riders. More beginner/intermediate.

       Nice work putting this one in. I’ve been mapping Liberty fire roads on OpenStreetMap recently and there are plenty of unmarked trails out there. Look for others on there for inspiration.

       How can I find a good resource on where the unmarked trails are? I live nearby. Thanks!

       Actually this is called Morgan Run East, not what the person named it per several other hike/bike trail apps for several years.
