      reporter Somewhat wet lower down, ideal dirt conditions higher up. Watch out for pies on the trail.

       The grade in the first 1.5 miles is really high with a number of technical sections. If you're riding with someone unused to those grades I would suggest driving 1 mile further up Tollgate Rd to a small parking area on the left side just before the motorized quarry trailhead. There is a cut in to Tinton from here and makes for a more enjoyable ride.
