    If you want to get technical, PS is the 7th trail in the Mag 7 line up That or the Portal would be the other option. It's just that most bail out Gemini as the ride up and over goldbar adds significant time, distance and effort to your ride.

    I rode RS,Jackson's Tuesday. It's good to go. There was some ice and mud in shady spots on Jackson's, but nothing that caused any issues. By now it's probably perfect.

    Doubt it. Snow just burnt of the West canyon wall in town. Not even sure Pipedream is ridable. That being said, Mag 7 is in great shape.

    I rode Rockstacker and upper and lower Captain Ahab one day and 7-Up, Bull Run, Arth's, Little Canyon, Great Escape, and Getaway another day. They are all in great shape.

    Did the south end of the MOAB Brand Trails, today, late this afternoon, parked right next to Ross Schnell in his new to him TDI sportwagen. Good stuff, quite impressed with how these CST Cabellero's hold up on the slick rock. Not the grippiest, but they wear pretty good on this stuff. Very nice, the new stuff put in over here since I rode it last year, mild tech stuff, nothing crazy, but fun, fun, fun, keeps you on your toes.

    The jeep crowd is thinning out now from March, still a few residual dudes in town. Get some while it's still cool, these rocks bake you when it gets close to 80F.

    Shuttles are running to UPS via lower Koko.
    Trail is in good shape.
    The last section of Porcupine singletrack has been heavily sanitized.

    That section was way too gnarly, it needed to be sanitized. I hope they put in a guard rail too because there's some exposure that not everyone is comfortable with. And how about some grip tape on the Notch so everyone can ride it.

    Smoothing out technical or rocky sections so the average tourist on a cruiser bike can ride it, effectively ruining the character and "soul" of the trail, the reason people come from all over the world to ride it.
    Ride On!

    Rode it Saturday, quite a bit of sanitizing when you hit the drop into jackass canyon all the way out to the road. Doesn't make too much sense as if you've made it that far, the rest should not be a problem. If there are plans to continue this up the trail, an intervention may be needed
    Ride On!

    The work took place between 3/31 and 4/6.
    New paint on rocks to show trail, rocks moved, trail widened, rockwork ramps, and several large boulders have had portions chipped off and removed to make more room on the trail.
    It is significantly easier to ride clean now than it was in the past.
