    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.

    Trail is still up and rocking. By far the best trail I know of in the area, at least in my opinion, it blows the socks of The Zipper and beats Mr. Toads marginally. It is worth it to note locals know the trail as "Tyrolean." For the downhill lovers this is a rather easy shuttle: park where the forest service road crosses the 431 for the second time and park at the bottom. The forest service road is on Google maps.

    first off, the downhill on this trail is epic. awesome banked turns, great jumps scattered around and some real good chances to get crazy. the only bad part is finding the trail after going up hill forever. me and my friend ended up on the tahoe rim trail trying to find the start of the downhill. but overall this is an awesome trail and i highly recommend it.

    I haven't done the loop here, but the downhill. AKA Kamikazi downhill, Rose downhill. This downhill is very technical with banked turns mild jumps scattered. Rock banks, drops and rock fields. There are a few tree rides scattered in there. Someone spent some hard hours on this downhill to make it so good. Later in the season the sand can be a pain but overall great. Don't expect to hit this trail without going down at least once. I would invest in some knee/elbow guards and definitely wear a helmet.

    Only flaw in this ride is the climbs are on the pavement
