Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Kestral is a beginner trail, but it’s also a semi-steep little grunt. The pain is short, though, and before you know it you’re on Crestline. Kestral is wide, heavily-used (often looped with Red Cliffs) and prone to mud in the spring. It’s popular with all kinds of trail users.
