 Abzweiger nach ca. 700m rechts nicht gefunden, untere Schlaufe zwar schön zumfahren, sie führt aber nirgens hin.

 The section of this trail between parkhurst loop and where it meets with green river access road is completely unmaintaimed. Just walking through it was difficult. Do not take your bike along here. There are jagged rocks and fallen down trees all over the trail. I had to carry my bike on my shoulder just to get through many sections of it. Definitely not recommended for bikers. Take the sea to sky trail if you are going to or from wedgemount parking lot.

 Absolutely terrible trail. Rooty Rocky and steep with lots of trees on the trail that you can't ride over. At the end you have to trespass on cn rail land and cross train tracks. I would recommend it for hiking only.
