      Major Water drainage issue, large mud holes. Generally clear all around, with some pretty squishy sections on the NW side of the trail. Overall...

       Fun cardio up with a cruiser dh that rolls thru a meadow. Rode up via mckenny/lost valley and then down back to the creek trail head. Go do some hard tech stuff and use this as a miles adder! Or, just go have a good spin.
