       Easily the most ridden trail in the #2 Canyon complex, so I don't get the unsanctioned label placed upon the trail? Evergreen has worked upon the trail recently as well.

       It’s definitely a sanctioned trail and is the main up trail to the other trails! This trail should be rated green though!
