      No trees down, very loose so quite a bit of hike-a-bike if heading towards Big Casino Creek.

       Super loose kitty litter and moon dust with giant ruts from motorcycles. Very steep in places resulted in quite a few hike a bike sections especially just prior to Boundary Creek intersection. I would not ride this trail ever again. Should be removed from MTB maps in my opinion.

       Nice views of Redfish Lake. Rode as part of a loop up Little Casino and down Big Casino.

       Total ass kicker of a climb but sweet views of the Sawtooths. Never actually insanely steep just pretty relentless
