Road this morning and it was better than I expected. Still a few soft spots and 3 or 4 persistent mud holes. Should be drier by evening.

Trail had lots of soft spots and quite a few puddles this morning - probably best to avoid it until late afternoon. I expected it to be dryer. Should be good this evening.

Rode Mon eve 8/19.....Trail was mostly dry with several large trees down after winter loop split and before end of trail.
At least 3 spots required dismount and climbing over or under trees crossing trail with bike. Will require chainsaw work.

Anyone happen to see a small white light unit on the trail?
It may have fell off when I was tossing my bike over the trees.

I saw a flashing red tail light in one of the turns around the first Mike marker. Looked black though

I cleared the trees and didn't see it.

Rode at 6pm tonight (Tues). Good size tree across the trail at the start of last little segment, right after the old trail head. You'll need to lift and carry. Otherwise the trail was damp but no puddles.

Looks like somebody got it mostly off the trail. Finished the job today. All clear. Thanks for the heads up.

There is a 4-5inch diameter tree blocking the trail probably 1.5miles before the trail head... Tried removing it with a couple guys but was not moving.
