      Trail is in great shape after the rains yesterday. A little bit of water in the drainage was pleasant to see.

       Thanks for the new trail Pima Co & SDMB!!! I appreciate all your hard work making this happen. Really enjoyed the techy sections on the climb up. DH was fun as well, but not quite as good as the other section of Mockingbird. Overall great new addition to TMP.

       What a great addition to the trail network! Thank you! Really nice trail, not super chunky at all (relative to say Explorer at least), very rideable and flows nicely. There's only one corner I have any complaints about, but they'd have to remove a beautiful barrel cactus to make it flow better, so I'm totally with it the way it is. Definitely worth the ride.

       Some nice terrain covered. Would be cool to get some small berms to keep the speed up.

       Nice addition connecting Explorer to 36st. Aptly rated a blue. Gives you the option to bail out of the techy Explorer climb halfway through it.
