Very nice! It'd be nice to hike it when there wasn't a drought so you could see the streams flowing.

This was fun on my trike, but definitely not the same as a traditional mountain bike. If I upgraded to 24" fat tires, work on my Balance/technique, the intermediate, beginner single track would be fun. I think I will stick to paved or gravel trails for now.
