Nice long intermediate single track. There are some short rock gardens at the top and there are tight switch backs throughout. This trail is definitely a classic

      Trail is running pretty well. There's a little bit of erosion at some of the exposed sections, be mindful.

      There are some deep ruts but most of them are wide and you can use the ruts as a guide. They are wheel catchers but it's worth dialing it back a bit.

      dry in the open sections, a bit of moist in the shady sections, but avoidable. ruts.
