We did about about 10 miles of it from Zenith trailhead about 5 miles each way. Even though it had been days since it rained it had been a wet summer so there were muddy spots but the soil is not clay so it wasn't slick. An easy ride. And even though it was an August day quite cool because it was along the water way.
