      Trail is dry and a great ride. If you haven't ridden this before the bottom section is very difficult - more like double back diamond.

       Wasp nest on the exit of the trail after the steep section at the bottom. The wasps are very aggressive. I got stung 3 times and they chased me and my dog.
