Comments
Comments: The trails are mildly-moderately muddy but that seems normal considering all the water sources around. Either this section didn't get much Elsa rain or it absorbed quickly. There's a small stream that runs down part of the slide but I was able to climb up without slipping. (and I'm a wuss about slides) I was glad I brought water shoes (or at least a change of shoes) to change things up during the 18 miles. Brutus Bushwhack has a muddy/slippery section - it's not scary, just annoying.
