This trail has a great mix of flowy berms, with some rooty/rocky sections thrown in too. It is a 2 way trail, but the vast majority of people ride down it.

      Fun fast trail, flows very well for the majority after the small climb a quarter way in. Many potential natural gaps

      Nice and grippy but, full of horse tracks that make for a bumpy, slow, uncomfortable start to decent. ~2-4 km ?

      I did this yesterday. If you like roots and rocks this is the one for you, recommend going up Rangers and down Strange Brew. A few muddy patches but in good condition.

      May 14, Trail is in pretty good shape.
      Unfortunately can’t say the same for the Baruch’s Corner sign at the top lookout, and the trail-map at the Elbow junction. Somebody thinks that wrecking the signs is fun or something.
      Anyway, let’s respect what has been provided for the enjoyment of the area without ruining it for everybody.
