       Is the hole in this trail a TTF or a hazard? I would love to build a bridge over it - unless that is the best part of the trail?

       This trail does not exist any longer. Frickin downed trees everywhere. I think the rich people that actually live on top at the Saskatchewan Drive likely cut those trees and branches on purpose to block people from riding down or up that hill. Machete is way better anyway.

       This thing is barely a trail to start with.
