August 18, 2015
As of August 2015 the trail is pretty dusty, wash boarded, chattery, and a TON of fun. This trail does not seem to get the use, or the love that the S. Lake Tahoe trails get. Corral has super smooth berms and brand new table top jumps, for example. D.P. gives it to you rough, with great rock gardens and roots. This is not a flow trail, more of a "downhill" feel than "trail" in places.
One thing on the directions: When you reach hwy 431, if thre is NOT a dirt road directly across from you, just go up the hill about 3 blocks. You'll see it there.
Also, you won't see the brown Forest Service trail markers. Take the third offshoot to the right, cross a fire road and you'll see the trail there.
