Primitive trail with a backcountry feel. Fun and engaging trail character. Narrow tread can feel "brushy" at times. Several small creek crossings.

A nice ride either direction worthy of more mountain bike traffic.

      3-4 downed trees across the trail. It is wet due to the rain we have been receiving but should dry out quickly.

      Couple dozen big trees down above Upper Tie junction. Mainly in the burn area. Chainsaw needed.

       Rode this in June 2018. Narrow singletrack that disappears at times. 15 creek crossings. Very adventure oriented riding. A few cool beaver ponds. Needs to see more tires to really be a go to trail. Much of this canyon was burned in a wildfire some years ago.
