      In great shape. First three miles are a constant climb. Top section on ridge is beautiful and fairly level.

      Some standing water at the very top and very bottom. Very rideable even 24 hours after a good rain. All trees across the trail were cleared 11/27....

       Rode this trail twice in late November 2017. It is a fairly wide and steep trail in the beginning with a hundred yards of standing water right from the parking lot. It gets a little more technical further up with decent rocks and roots and finally legit singletrack as the elevation levels out as you reach the sign at the top.

      Calling this a blue trail is a stretch.

      Although the trail is mostly devoid of features and has a good amount of gravel, the positive is a very high speed descent.

      I would exercise some caution for downed trees and wildlife. I had a yard sale hopping over a big wet Redwood log. And heard some bears grunting in the woods (deer have higher pitched grunts).

       Also my Garmin said the whole trail parking lot to top back to parking lot was 9.8 miles with 1770 elevation

       Trail is clear of any issues as of 5/2019. The tree that fell over has been turned into a little jump on the way down.

       Just got done riding from sign to sign. Two trees down on the trail, one you have to climb over, the other you just ride around. Very fun trail. I also suggest riding from the north fork river side to the parking lot. First mile up is steep switch backs but after that its a steady climb up, and than a fast ride down. Summer 2019
