      Makwa is dry and in great condition with one huge down tree about 2 miles into the trail from Mosquito Brook.

      Makwa is a lot more fun if you ride it from 00 trail head to mosquito brooke trail head (unless you enjoy climbing). This trail is an old school single track with plenty of roots and rocks to keep it interesting. Plenty of options to cut the ride short via birkie trail or fire roads as well.
