Low angle pinner, slightly cross-country and a fun change-up from the intense upper trails that funnel down here.

      Good condition, other than one wood bridge is looking pretty tired. A broken cross piece or 2. Some nails could probably use a hammer (or rock).

      Couple of trees down that would require a chain saw to remove. Other than that all good!
