      Brushed and tuned up in fall 2017. Put in a case pad and a couple of new chicken lines around the gnar. Fully good to go!

      The trail is so overgrown it's pretty close to unrideable. Even if I had the skill level to hit the big stunts, they look as if they haven't seen...

      Needs a brush trimmer in the clear cut. One tree down right before you exit clear cut.

       The trail is very overgrown in the top section but once you get to the lower part of the trail it is a blast! ????????

       Looks like it hasn't been ridden much lately. Needs some TLC.
      The big woodwork is super sketchy and the ride out of the big slab needs help.
      Not sure if there was a sign at the trail head before but there isn't now.
