 Just rode this trail this morning. So amazing! Epic ascent, challenging, but just doable, lots of fun, then a nice traverse with lots of rolling, steep short ups and downs, some fun bridgework through cedar grove, all around great. In the forest most of the time, but with some nice viewpoints. Highly recommend this fun ride!

 Fun trail, good effort going up worth it for the technical (blue) downhill at the end. Tree down over trail about 2/3’s way along. Looping back along the wagon trail is not doable currently because of logging. I had to go along highway until ski touring road

 Bring your legs.. good grief. I’m not crazy about the trail, no rythem. Up and down, up and down. 3 trees across the trail in different locations. Seems like it doesn’t get ridden much, lots of over growth.
I won’t ride it again..
