Fairly easy and fun. Not good in winter because there are several big long puddles with no way around.

      This isn’t really a blue, more green-ish, and isn’t really a single track - more like an old, overgrown logging road. Kinda fun and fast when...

       Detour from the road below it, little more elevation change id say than the road. More fun I’d say, adds time whichever direction you’re going. Old road that just had singletrack worn in now
