Classic NW singletrack with a more natural feel than anything else at Sandy. Nearly everything is negotiable by an intermediate rider, but at speed the trail comes alive. Trail has many medium-sized rocks on direct lines that need to be ridden or avoided, keeping riders on their toes.

      "Don't bring your girlfriend or your kids unless they are good riders." - there is an assumption that a (probably white) man is entitled to this trail, and has been given all the privilege and opportunity to become a capable rider, yet a woman or young person doesn't belong on it "unless they're good." This is precisely what is wrong with this world.

      Upper hide and seek is riding great right now! Great technical spots that will challenge anyone.

      The trail is (perhaps unsurprisingly) very wet. There's a lot of standing water. Only one down tree, but I was able to clear it.

      Often see inexperienced riders walking down, especially when wet it is fairly technical with sideways roots and slick rocks.
      A couple of small drops too.
      Don’t bring your girlfriend or kids unless they are good riders.

      This run was really a treat. I think anyone beginner-mediate or better should definitely ride this. It's mostly flowy, sometimes a little chunky, and a great adventure in the woods.

      Don't let the blue designation scare you away if you are a hardcore rider! Sooo much fun for experts too
