We tried riding from the campground to Goodyear’s Bar - about 700m from GB the trail is washed away with a pretty sketchy scramble if you want...

Narrow trail that hugs the hill. Nothing too technical other than a bit of a climb out of Downieville and narrowness of the trail.

 The west side of the trail needs major work and I was not able to get all the way through the trail. Found a place to bailout and get back to the road. This trail would be great if we can clean out all the brush and fix the wash out.
