After recent reroute the trail rides great. Starting with thick stands of aspen and mature pines sprinkled with a few short creek splashdowns. After a short climb up from Starvation Creek at the trails midway point, get ready for continuous fast curvy flow down through endless alpine flowers and scrub oak.

      Loose and janky in spots, no surprise, it's a moto trail. Still fun! Fantastic scenery and a beautiful forest.

      Fun trail, no big jumps, one very steep down amd up to cross a small stream. The bottom half of this trail appears to have been rerouted as the gps put me west of it by maybe up to a few hundred yards. Enough that I had to walk back up a while and search for a junction tjat didn't exist, and I eventually gave up and rode it and found it leads to the same place. Just lost some time.

      I've updated trail with accurate GPS tracks to reflect the recent reroute
