      Trimmed back Palo Verde and Catclaw. Bad erosion in many areas now. Center section has become HAB.

      Trail has been washed out from the recent heavy rains and is HAB in many areas. Not in good condition at this time.

      Mostly rideable and fun from East to West - some difficult up hill compared to Goldlink though.
