Most of this trail is really not that difficult. As you come off the top there is some rocky section that you have to sit back a bit for. But most the trail is just rockier then the rest of the mostly buff trails as the resort. Fun and a bit old school rutted in sections.

      Trail is extremely dry. There's really no trail work that can be done on this one, just needs some H2O.

      Dry weather this year has caused the tracks to get really beat up.

       This trail is technically a black, but is very difficult if you try to do it top/bottom in 1 shot due to length. It's much easier if you do it in sections then rest. Total jackhammer ride.
