Good single track with lots of rocks and roots (some double track ~1mile near the south end). Moderate amounts of climbing, some exposure. Great views of the north side of Mt Hood, and the Hood river valley. 13 miles each way from Baldy (power lines) on the north to Forest road 44 on the south.

      Large tree with lots of branches down just east of Cooks Meadow intersection, easiest to bump out to 44 Road for 100 yards or so to avoid that...

      Clear from the duper connector to the power lines. Several trees down between the super connector and the hub trail.

       Fun trail on it's own. Rode this from power lines to FR 44 as part of a loop with dog river. You can park at the ranger station, but it takes 10 miles of uphill road riding to get to TH. Need to be very fit for that whole ride (33 miles). Would recommend just riding the trail on its own as out and back or shuttle it.

       Riding great. One tree down about half way but pretty visible.

       New trail segments not reflected in Trailforks. Following the signage will get you where you need to go with the exception of one unsigned right turn off of double track back onto single track after the climb out of the Superconnector junction.

       I'm curious why this trail is rated black? The only difficult things on it were a couple of pointy rock-gardens, but those were trivial to walk and they looked rideable if I wasn't so pooped. I'd rate this green/blue for most of it: lots of traction in the woods, and you can take it whatever speed you like.

       Definitely a blue trail with very moderate pitch and smooth for all but a few sections. There are rocks and roots, but pretty sporadic and limited for the most part. That said it is a ripping fast and fun trail overall with really good views along the way.
