      a few inches of slushy snow for the first mile or so, otherwise great conditions

      Significant water erosion and rutting. Some of the technical sections are almost unrideable because fines washed away and left the only boulders

      It is rideable but extremely hard. There is a massive rut running down most of the trail due to all of the rain.

      Snow covered until the traverse to Kineo after this last storm

       Don’t really get the hype. This trail was super thick loose gravel for the most part. Didn’t help that I had just come up st Mary’s and Nelson’s.
