Rode today and had forgotten just how fun this trail is. I'd say it is in perfect condition right now. Face slappers were minimal compared to my home dirt at Custer. I'd suggest using lighter lenses (orange) as the dense canopy high above leaves things relatively dark for most of the trail. Had no problem looking out for oncoming traffic since the foliage at ground level is pretty low in most parts and it's easy to see far ahead except for a few blind turns. Like most on here, highly recommend riding the larger loop counter clockwise, just more flow. You'll want to start the bigger loop at marker #5 and end at #2. The section from #2 to #5 on what I call the inner or smaller loop is a can't miss section. Short, but a nice little roller coaster. I usually start by riding the smaller loop clockwise so I can hit #2 to #5 twice during my ride. Anyone looking to train some young riders would find this trail helpful. Riding the small loop repeatedly in both directions would be ideal due to the short length, intermediate skills needed, climbing, and fun factor.
