      Dry enough to not leave trail impressions for the most part, but a few damp spots. Looked like rain was moving near 7pm.

       The intermediate rating on this trail is somewhat misleading — there are no difficult technical aspects, but the grade is VERY steep in sections and will be physically challenging to ride for all but the strongest riders.
