Tough uphill sections, sometimes you might have to walk up hills. In most portions there are 1/2 a foot wide and deep. But all in all a hard/fun ride 19.8mi

Trail was in good shape, a little snow and ice in the shade but very little. Clockwise direction seemed to have more flow but saw riders riding in the counterclockwise direction also. A mix of single track and double track with a bit of elevation gain and some small climbs. Fun to play around on the dam, can actually ride over the concrete structures and through the water.
