      Muddy up top, but pretty good once you get into the trees down below.

      Rideable but definitely wet and slippery in places.

      SLIPPERY WHEN WET! All year round you want to be on a proper DH bike to really ride this. In the winter this rides like a double black. You better be a proper ripper if you expect to stay on your bike all the way down. Lower section is super fun on all bikes and rides like a blue trail.

      This trail has changed it it 03-28-21 and it it a different trail the second jump after the first chute and berm it's about 2 feet taller and not a table top its like a step up to a flat lading or into a berm. The secondary chute after you cross the road is a legit chuck fest and the trail has more trenches and better flow now then 2 years ago. The drops before the big drop are smaller and packed in better for the fist timers that's will be good news. In all this is for realy my favorite trail in WA it's amazing in the shape its in. With the right bike and the right conditions it's amazing but this trail is no joke when wet it's a coin flip if you won't crash

      Amazing trail, although this is my first time here and it rained a lot last week.

      It was in phenomenal shape and is one of the best built trails I’ve ever ridden. No clue what other commenters are complaining about. There’s some really steep spots but it’s a freaking downhill trail, what did you expect? No ruts, berms were rippin, lots of medium doubles. Just a fantastic trail.

      Did a blind run and crashed good ripped rotator cuff . this trail is super steep 1200 foot descent the top part and lower are great middle is so rutted out washed out an off camber plus super speep you can’t really stop. Committed is the word of choice. I love the trail but it was to much for me and I’ve ridden alot of dh at whistler and Stevens Pass this one harder then them in the condition it is in I was on my Capra I recommend you take a dh bike up I will be returning for a full run that’s my goal.
