Starting to get pretty overgrown on the top half of the descent to Prefumo Canyon Road. Still rideable and fun but be ready to whack a few...

Only two small muddy spots left on the Madonna road side which can easily be walked around. Prefumo half is fully mud-less and in good condition.

Lower sections, especially the west end (near Prefumo Cyn) has significant deep mud sections.
