Fun trail that starts wide with built-up jumps and then narrows and becomes very steep. Is 100% rideable but still needs some trail building improvements on the lower, steeper section. You can ride around or roll over most of the jumps if needed. The biggest jump unfortunately comes right at the point where it crosses a popular hiking trail (Ridge Trail) - this point is not obvious when you are riding the Slide Trail - advice is to proceed slowly and with caution until you cross this point (marked on the map).

At least half a dozen trees down forcing you off the bike and killing your flow on an otherwise great run

Multiple trees down across the trail but it's easy to carry your bike over or under.

 Fun track but a half dozen trees down that force you off the bike and kills the flow. With some maintenance, this would be a great run.
