Trail is in great shape. A few plants want fist bumps, but otherwise it is clean.

 Great trail! It’s a very nice break from the typical sand and cactus. The climbs is definitely worth it for the DH you get in return. Excellent Burms. Overall a great quality trail! Will be in me and the wife’s normal rotation.
