This trail starts out like your typical traverse ridge trail, where the dirt is clay and tends to get really hard. The trail undulates through the scrub oak and is pretty fast and flowing at the top. A couple quick dips into some hollows where the old trenches are still visible. As you get lower the trail opens up out of the trees and the soil gets to be sandy and a bit loose, but dries out fast. Nearest the bottom are large granite boulders and the trail starts to wind around the old rock water slide. There are several little creek crossings until you get to the big one with a bridge.

Right after the bridge the trail gets really steep because it is bumping right up against the Lone Peak Wilderness border.

Trail is totally dry, just a couple puddles near the top. But one of the small creek crossings has an old dry tree trunk fallen down.

Most dry - a couple of sections of mud - enough to get your tires nasty.

Mostly dry but still wet in some of the higher elevations. Not really wet enough to stick to tires though

 looks like the connector to Alpine perimeter is open. They were putting up railing on the bridge, but said it was open.
