       I did this last weekend and got my mind blown. I’d call this trail the most fun enduro trail in the area.

       It’s July. Trail looks like bo one maintains it. Lot of plants growing into the trail including poison oak. Also it’s singletrack with plenty of loose rocks. Did not love it.

       This section for Oat Hill Mine has more technical bedrock sections bit less vertical gain. Tons of fun. The trail has mostly been cleared of debris since the fires. There are plenty of charred branches that will grab you at times. There are two downed trees at the low point of the trail that need to be cut or a rock bridge made to climb over. The larger tree is 18" in diameter. Great views and the trail is in great shape considering that it was torched.
