 Swished SnakePit last week on an XC rig and found it to be pretty sweet and in good condition for the top 2/3 but pretty chunky and distracting along the bottom 1/3 or so.
Still, pretty nice ride and suggestive of what a pre-ride of 'Beowulf' offers. Can't wait for that longish trail to be looped. Kudos to SS trail boys on the intelligent use of grade. Will be a challenge once you begin the descent from Alder Point.
