       Trail forks shows this trail leaving a double track to the right. The trail is on the left, has a couple of switchbacks then crosses the double track to continue to climb. Good climbing trail but there is no signage on any of the trails.

       KZ, It does need to be re-gps'd. The start on the left is a relatively new re-route. Gold Country Trails Council (the equestrian group) maintains this trail. They also have a lot of unofficial trails in the area which makes the lack of signage problematic until you learn your way around. There are some signs but just not enough and some may have been lost over the winter. USFS had been working on signage but there may not be any this year as our District's non-motorized budget is zero. Literally. So unless GCTC gets a grant or purchases signs itself then I don't believe they're like to appear any time soon.

       Worth riding once in a while but not a very inspiring trail compared to Hoot and Scott's Flat
