      Fun trail and super super chunky at the moment. Large washes have made the trail even more technical and some sections of the trail are under...

       Very tough trail for biking. Large portions are basically unmanageable if you start from the base and ride uphill.

       Sign at start says bikes NOT recommended and not sure why. Trail starts with nice flow followed by chunky descents. Gets sandy in middle with a couple of sandy climbs. The creek section is hairy, virtually unrideable unless you’re hairier than it. Bottom half continues flowy and dumps into the park. Worth doing, best to have someone deop you at TRT/Rose trailhead, then pick up at Davis Creek Park.

       Agree that this trail had just enough fun to counteract the crappy. The "creek" section is stupid though and could use a reroute. Few other sections of trail just need some time with a rake to remove pinecones and loose rock, but in general I enjoyed most of it. Message me if anyone ever wants to work on this thing...I'd be interested!

       This was a great trail. I am happy to be able to put this on my YouTube channel. I think more people need to get out there and check this out.
