The trails is in great shape but there is one thing to note. RIVERview east bound, just past the power line cut and right after the bottom of that gully, huge log rolled on to the trail. It’s the right side of the log that was cut for the trail to pass through. That logs probably been lying on the ground for 50 years and the wood is spongy but it was a huge tree. It rolled up oagainst a young tree anoint 3-4” dia. Cutting that tree would alllw it to roll on past the trail and out of the way.

I think the log/tree is fine where it is. Why on earth would you want to move it?

We may not be talking about the same tree/log. It was sitting right on the trail.

I did a night ride tonight. It’s been taken care of. The trail is clear.
I don't know who cleared it but it's all good now.

I heard we aren't "supposed" to ride at night here. Is it ok?

I'm not aware of that rule, maybe it's related to parking? I ride in or park in a place that's not restricted after dark.

Jwhitey I won't worry about it then! I just ride from my office after work and will do so more from now on! Maybe we cross paths on the trail sometime!

Sounds good but I busted up my thumb pretty good yesterday on a snowy leafy off camber decent on Lakeview. I won't be on the trail much for the next couple of weeks.

Bummer. It is pretty tricky out there, and I can imagine on that trail the areas that could catch you out with snow on leaves. Hope it heals quickly. I will keep the trail warm for ya. :)
