Observations: This was our post-TM ride (where we armored a small stream crossing, dug a drainage trench, and Paula made a new log-skinny with her chain saw). Trails are well-used but in good condition, although there are a few areas still on the TM agenda. We saw a lot of riders, from neophytes to seasoned veterans. These trails get a lot of use and are holding up well due to good design.

The trails here are deceptively difficult, with a lot of square-edged rocks and steep, twisty climbs. There are also a lot of logs of various sizes lying across the trails. Bring a rigid and/or singlespeed bike and you're in for a workout.
