A nice alternate to the train tracks when the trail is rideable. Very unrideable when wet; wet, sticky hoof holes and endless clay. Beautiful trail overlooking Stenner Creek.

      Really rough from cow hooves. They tore thru when it was wet and now it dried up really rough.

      The trail is running really well right now. There are no significant ruts or extensive bumps from grazing cattle at the moment.

      Trail is rough from the cows. Over grown in some areas. Ruts have not been smoothed out from the winter rains.
