      After re-opening this has become primarily a family friendly hiking trail. Guaranteed hikers including kids on the trail so beware.

      Hiker central, ride only if necessary or with day-one beginners.

      I guess they finally fixed the wash out. They put in speed gates which I'm not the biggest fan of but at least it is open again.
