       When we rode this trail it was super loose, super blown out and incredibly overgrown. Turned out more of a chore than a pleasure for a back country epic.

       TBF, since the fires in 2009 this trail has always been super loose/blown out and overgrown in the summer. Before the fire it was probably one of the better descents in the Sea to Sky, it's still rad imo, just wait until fall when the veg and bugs die off.
