Muddy in about 5% of the trail. Got a flat from a thorn trying to ride around a couple of the boggy sections. Bike was pretty muddy after ride.

 When accessing the trail from inside short hills, climb and take your first immediate left, starting the trail in the south direction looping around. This will give you the best ride and mix of ascents / descents. Taking the trail in the opposite direction is a much less enjoyable ride with more climbs and missed downhill obstacle opportunities.
