Rode Horn Creek with two friends today, first ride on this trail for all of us, so I have no past rides to compare it to. It appeared in good shape. The logging has left some areas a bit sunny and hot, no canopy, but tolerable. No undergrowth to speak of, at least nothing like Wine Creek. There is a big washout just past 4.5m, a ravine that runs down hill in the middle of the trail, that almost caught me off guard. A few trees down, unrideable for us three (discretion & valor), probably not for the sport/expert class types. Several areas where the roots act like water breaks and have drop offs behind them. Was a bit confused as I was approaching a climb and saw a big white arrow pointing to the right, then saw how you'd end up in the creek if you weren't paying attention and tried to Tinker Jaurez the climb. All and all, very enjoyable, especially for the two newer riders with me. Thanks again SORBA-CSRA, I plan on joining soon, you guys are a class act.
