Tree down Sat afternoon 6/15 3pm right after winter loop intersection. This tree is too big to move - maybe 8” dia, needs chainsaw.....lots of big front rings tearing it up though. Lots of face whippers and overgrowth encroaching the trail and corners.

Lol, for real though, is the mud bog just at the end or the whole trail?

I was out on the trail on Saturday evening, and conditions were pretty good. There are some mud spots, but unless we get like a week of dry weather I doubt they'll dry up. I try to give at least two days of dry time after a heavy rain before I go on the trails again.

Trail was great today. 3 soft spots but no puddles and no grease.

Several face slappers so don't forget the goggles.

10:00 AM Thurs: Last night's rain left numerous nuisance puddles and wet branches hanging down. These should improve as the day does on but be prepared. Hacked off a few of the worst branches.

I rode/ walked it Wednesday. Still too many ponds and puddles, plus rained a lot again yesterday.

I removed dozens of large and medium branches that had fallen across the trail. The small tree right at 5.25 continues to lean into the trail. It's approaching widow maker status for our taller riders.

Thanks
Be careful out there, it's hot. I'll try for that tree this weekend. How big?
