      North side is all broken by erosion. Unrideable mud around the bridge.

      Significant erosion on the ascent from the parking lot. Running water down the trail in lots of areas. The backside is muddy all the way to the...

       This trail is just as technical as rocky ridge... not sure why this one's rated blue. Trail is shorter than rocky, but it (for the most part) has better flow and there are more corners. Good fun. Best ride here is when you connect both rocky ridge and styles.

       PUMP UP YOUR TIRES! This trail is insanely fun to blast through but be careful of some of the sharper rocks. I’ve ended up with two flats up there the could’ve been avoided if I ran like 40psi

       I'm puzzled about this being a blue trail as well. There are a lot of long, rocky sections that will blow you mind ascending or descending.

       After the rain this year, Stiles has changed to be significantly more technical on the section from the parking lot up to top of the first climb. The initial ascent is now rockier than Rocky Ridge. Super challenging.
