       With how much fun the Expresso / Lower Expresso combo is, Pennzoil is pretty disappointing these days. The trail is heavily eroded, and most people seem to stay away on their final descent back to Braemar. It would be pretty rad if this could someday see the same manicuring that Lower Expresso gets.

       Pretty eroded and loose. A few good wooden features though. If someone put some work in on this trail it would be gold
