Very easy trail going from Skyline to Lower Tafoni, Fir and other trails. It's smooth and wide, almost a fire road. Very beginner friendly.

much improved trail conditions since our recent sky watering. Still a little dry, but way better than average for this time of year.

CAUTION: tree down across trail ~200 yards above the Tafoni / Fir Trail intersection. Otherwise, great soil under typical scattering of dry leaf...

 If you're coming from the Skeggs parking lot, I prefer this trail over the Fir Trail if you are planning on riding down Resolution or down lower Tafoni, which seems to be missing from Trail Forks. It's a little more fun and interesting, but still the width of a fire road.
