Fast fun down. Not officially downhill only, but when doing a loop this is the most fun way to go down.

      Very dusty and blown out. Overgrown up top. Needs a lot of work.

       Worth noting that the gate to the UOP closes usually around 8pm! You can park outside the gate and pedal in, but if you're doing an afterwork pedal - don't get locked in!

       Looks like a fun trail with switch backs, etc. but it was just okay for me. Not very many built up burms, no jumps, and it doesn’t flow great. It was pretty coming down through the pines though. I’d rate this trail a 3.5 for those looking for a fun down hill trail.

       A nice downhill ride with sections going through the pines. I usually encounter hikers and dogs coming up this trail so a courtesy bell is helpful.

       As of 5/15/20 upper and lower section remain closed. Same goes for Yeti’s. Hoping it will re-open by August.

       Olympic Trail to Moose Puddle yesterday - great ride, amazing views at the top. Link to BLT for a fun easy downhill, and stop by the Olympic aerial pool to watch some amazing ski jump acrobatics.

       Good place to practice flat turns. The trail does not flow well, but there are some fast sections here and there. I think the 3 out of 5 stars is a perfect rating for this trail.
