      There has been some recent work done on the upper part. Still one large washout, but not a huge deal to hike-a-bike across. There are a few trees...

       Epic trail!! Top section is over grown, but trail wizards are putting great work in at about 2/3 up. There is a bit of a hike a bike through a washout gully. Needs some trail love!

       Thanks for the comment on this. Not many recent reports on trails listed on Trail Forks in this area. I'm from Washington State and am coming over for a work trip in a few weeks. Am looking for some trails to ride close to Eureka after working 12hr days. Any suggestions?
