Date of Activity: 5/1710
Condition of Trails(s): Fantastic! All cleared and rippable. A few muddy stream crossings that I always walk. A few of these crossings could use some work -- maybe later this year I can help the master-builders with this work.

Location: Gay City SP; and slope west of the Blackledge River
Trail(s) Ridden: I rode the red trail from the picnic area north to the singletrack that leads out to Rte 94, crossed the river on Rte 94 and took the Blackledge Falls trail up to the power line right of way; then rode the NEMBA loop trail off the right of way all over the eastern facing slope and back to the right of way, then took the main trail on the western side of the Blackledge River to where it hooked up with the red trail back over the river and back to the picnic/parking area.
How did you use the trail: Mt. Biking
What was the time of day: 3 PM
Duration (Hours): 2
Distance (Miles): 8.6
Observations: Our NEMBA brethren have spent many hours making this an almost perfect trail (except for the rock garden near the end, which is pretty brutal).
