Getting forecast...

I ride this trail on a weekly basis and it's a great ride for a beginner and novice. There are a few narrow spots and technical areas around the creek crossings and river. The "Mud Run"Section is usually underwater unless there is a week without rain. It can get very muddy in certain areas even after a few days have passed so be prepared to clean you tires off after running it. Sep 7, 2017
