      Few muddy spots

      The access trails (Mother's Day and Skully's climb) were OK, but this trail needed more time to dry before it would be ready for traffic.

       This is a black diamond trail. Signage at the Skully's end confirms this. Also, don't think you're going to climb A-Day and then hang a left, ride across the top of the mountain and hook up with Skully's EASILY. This is the wrong direction. About halfway there (between one if the literal 10-12 rooty and steep uphill switchbacks) you'll realize the trail is best ridden from Skully's down. And finally, it's a maze up there, with no trail markers - Staying on trail is a challenge.

       I agree with the last comment. Way too many unmarked junctions, not a blue either. If you just want to link the two systems, don’t take this

       While Trailforks notes this trail as blue, the trail signs note it as black. We concur with the above comments. This is a black trail with many technical features.
