Major erosion (major ruts or slumping, large boulders and roots exposed due to erosion) New Torrent should be a case study in how NOT to build...

 Really fun trail with excellent flow and interesting options like the big rock roll. Trail builders did a great job with this one!

 Steep rugged trail after a long climb. Lots of good technical features. Dry and loose after at least a year without maintenance. Several areas eroded, rutted and loose rocks.
