Molten lava type terrain that is good fun in either direction. Challenging to climb and descend. Beginners beware, take your time in either direction. Multiple lines to choose, a good flow once you've done it a few times.

Finally got some much needed rain. A few puddles but super tacky dirt. Unfortunately it dries out so fast here.

 Lots of equestrian activity. Deeply rutted trails. Horse crap everywhere, and horse piss mud patches that can surprise you and get splattered up at you. Encountered a really rude horse rider. Next time I come to the area I'm staying to the east of the flume trail, away from the equestrian rental area and their usual routes.
