A great 10 mile loop around beautiful Navajo Lake. Trail is nearly entirely single track with the exception of a connecting segment of double track that is maybe 1/2 mile of the 10 mile loop. Undulating terrain. Nothing too technical. Mostly fun and flowy.

At least a dozen trees down. Some requiring major around portages. Some crusty snow, but no mud.

Two trees down along the trail but easy to get over. Beautiful trail.

There's a gnarly 4-6" stump, west of the Navajo Campground that needs to be worked out. Either cut it down, or build the dirt up to it. Heading...

 Rode this trail mid-June. Exceptional condition. No downed trees or residual snow banks.

 Rode today clockwise. There were 3 downed trees. Fun flowy trail but could use some maintenance in a few places.
