Still a creek after the end of the line junction. I’d try the other trail instead

Tonight it was the same as the report from 2 days ago: clear except had to ride through water on the trail which was fun ????

No deadfall, but quite of bit of leaves on the trails. Towards the end, after the split from End of Line, the trail becomes a creek/pond. It's not...

 Thought linking Trash, Train Wreck, and Runaway Train would be a good ride. It was NOT. These trails are more like hiking trails that you can kinda bike. Hard to link a lot of the sections together on these trails without walking. Kept expecting to ride something cool but it just never came.... The photos on Trailforks and Pinkbike are deceiving as there isn't a single remnant of a train on Runaway Train. The stuff you see on Train Wreck is not actually a rideable section of trail. Just a bunch of rail cars with remnants of what used to be a cool looking ride. Now, just a spiderweb of trails full of hiking tourists. None of these were worth it.

 Eeeeasy Shelaine22! The trail is good but it’s an XC trail through and through with quite a few technical bits. It requires a bit of skill but the whole trail is rideable and in the fall it’s beautiful.
