       There were literally hundreds of downed trees and about ten water crossings that require rock scrambling while carrying the bike. I would find out if it's been cleared before going out on this trail again ( but I don't think I want to ever go back)

       Beautiful trail, not very technical, more on the XC side of things but really wonderful area.

       Lots of trees down, big avalanche path that you have to hike around, and lots of washed out sections of trail with mulit river crossings.

       Super scenic ride. Not a very good trail at all however. Multi use trail, essentially very flat and impossible to ride fast. A long climb is rewarded with nothing but a slight decline, and a multitude of creek crossings, in which you lose all speed and flow. Recommend this trail to anyone looking for a pretty 3-4 hour peddle who doesn’t care about riding logging roads, moto tracks, and hiking trails. For a more enduro/all mountain ride, consider riding from the trail head clockwise until you reach the “top” of the peak, in which you can turn around and ride back down what you just climbed for what looks to be a fast, float descent.
