      Trail is fairly good. Definitely some spring thaw still going on. Everything is ridable up to Windago, after you pass Windago you run into a lot...

       For those not local (like me) and not familiar with trail, there are free range cows everywhere on this trail. Be prepared to find a carwash after for your bike and yourself.
