    Not maintained. This is on IMBA's "epics" list but somehow none of the locals know about it. Thats probably because it hasn't been maintained in years. Its too bad because it seems like it would be a great all day ride. Save yourself the frustration and do Little Pine and maybe a few of the other trails off Oso.
