Very fun section of trail for skilled technical riders of happy hike'a'bikers. Lots of granite to play on. Intensely beautiful with swimming options along the way.

 They should rename this thing “go fund me”,
because it needs one. I like a techy trail as much as the next guy, but even a tech jedi would have to ride this thing 5-6 time to ring any flow out of it, and no one is going to do that. This trail is what hike-a-bike nightmares are made of, each dismount thinking “maybe it gets better around this corner, or THIS corner.... THIS CORNER?!” With a lot of TLC this trail could be great, beautiful setting, nice geographic changes. In its current state, it’s a pretty lousy experience.

 This is a serious hike-a-bike. This trail wasn’t enjoyable. At most, I only rode .25mi before stopping. Trail has some fallen trees. Not my type of riding. Agree with previous comment.
