A longer ride from parking lot to parking lot. Plenty of climbing through varied terrain. Some great views and some interesting rock formations. Portions of this trail can get substantially overgrown by late summer.

      Soil conditions perfect, weather ideal. Unfortunately, for much of the first few miles the trail is so deeply rutted and narrow that I couldn't...

      Fine conditions - occasional mud on any low point.

       I love this trail, but it's so narrow and water has carved it so deep that there are a lot of places where it's impossible (at least for me) to pedal without constant pedal strikes on both sides.

       The deep and narrow part is pretty much limited to the first mile or so.

       Tried riding, but way too deep and narrow for biking, I’m my opinion. Constant pedal strikes
