      CCW was really good. Trail was still slightly damp from last night. First time out here. It is so beautiful. Must come back more.

      Trail access at campgrounds closed due to Covid-19. Use trail access closest to main road but limited parking.

      No trail blockages if you don’t count cattle or deer on a couple spots but they move along easily.

       Love this trail. Total seclusion. I’ve seen antelope, deer and bear while riding this. Counter-Clockwise for sure. Try and find the energy to descend the short cut from east to west. Fun little descent.

       Great “get lost in the forrest” trail. I say “get lost” but in reality the trail was very well marked and always easy to follow. Couple junctions with good signage will keep you on track. Rode CCW which made for some serious endurance climbs but was rewarded with some killer descents. Great views, saw cattle close up and a heard of elk running across some trail sections. Fresh bear poop but no sightings. Must do trail in the Mcnary/Pinetop area.

       Was out there today, they have had a tone of rain. Trail is very soft and clingy. U may want to wait for it to dry out. Supposed to stop raining Tuesday should be good by the weekend.
