Nice ride on a hot day in FtC. 50% shade, and I counted 22 creek crossings. The crossings were only 2-4in deep today. There is some technical stuff around the creek crossings, and there are a few rock gardens that aren't tied to the creek. All the gnarly spots have multiple lines. The trail started out 5-6ft wide and narrowed to nearly nothing before meeting the forest service road at the top. I only saw two other people on the trail on a Sunday with pretty high traffic on hwy 14. After the ride up, I was expecting to fly back down, but the combo of the rocks, the narrow trail, and the short sight lines were pretty good at limiting my speed. This was my first time on Dadd, but I had a great time.
