    ran the trail in the rain so footing can be slippery as the mud can be slick on the hills. no severe climbs and only few rocky areas where have to watch your footing. Well worn single-track with some open grassy areas. Lots of deer out today and plenty of wildflowers to check out. Not a lot of trail markings but just follow the well-worn track and you’re fine.
