Avoid Poto at all costs right now. So many hikers and dogs on no leashes....completely makes the trail unenjoyable. Guess I'll be sticking to Highland and Gruber's for the time being, haha

Rode Poto Saturday 4/18.

So. Many. Hikers. About halfway thru, I was thinking I should have started counting from the beginning. In a 1 mile section after the Blind Lake camping area I counted 29 hikers. From the bottom of the big climb near the end, to the bench at the top, 25 hikers! And from the bench, to the end, 30 hikers.

Other than that, the couple of normal mushy spots, but overall the trail was in pretty good shape.

Trail was in good condition.

I only encountered 128 hikers in the time I was out there. :)

Heard through the grapevine that Poto got a bunch of money to put towards working on the trail, and one of the proposed sections might be the downhill(*beep* On Wheels on strava) after the boy scout hill/sun tan climb. Please don't let this be true, that's the only decently rowdy downhill around! Go fix those geo scale mat areas or the other snoozer downhill sections instead. Keep the root drops on *beep* On Wheels please.

Also noticed a bunch of new cheater lines popping up here. The trail is already super wide in spots, didn't realize it needed to be even wider now with more xc racer lines....

Besides that, it was running fast yesterday. Get it while it's good.

E bikes go wide from weight and speed.

Plenty of trees down from storms a few days ago. All require chainsaw...
