 Rode May 22, 2017. Smooth and dry. Much smoother than Goat Creek trail which is much rockier. A few good slow climbs but lots of long fun downhill. We only rode the West or South side of the creek. Trail was dry.

 Rode November 21, 2017. Not quite enough of a base yet for fat biking but give it another week.
