It is a blast going down but it is dry and dusty so watch for those outside corners (I slide out on a few).

Lower Taylor Ridge is in amazing shape. NEWATrails has done a great job in reopening this trail after the fire closure. It's in the best shape...

Lower Taylor Ridge is clear, other than one fallen tree, and has had some recent weed and branch clearing. This is the absolute best time to ride it!

 The tread width on lower Taylor Ridge just keeps getting better. Shout out to the NEWT trail builders for the effort! Thank you.
