      reporter Ran the section from O'Brien Creek to the North Loop junction. Trail is in the best shape I have seen it. The path is worn in and easy to follow...

      There’s one large tree down on the final singletrack above the trailhead. The ticks are out!

       Except for the last half mile this trail is essentially overgrown and weedy fire road and becomes very indistinct at various sections. If you like curvy, flowy singletrack this is not the trail for you.

       Fun ride but not a green. Definitely overgrown but trail is easy to follow.

       Adding on to previous comment
      Most of it is greener except the part getting up to the road bed after you split off from O’Brien creek. Fun ride. We just had to walk some of that section.
