Yes, the worst of the mud is is just south of Garden Road. If carrying stuff in, the best place to start is Garden Rd and go backwards to the mud holes.

There is also a potential widow-maker leaning tree on the downslope of the "dip" of loop 4. This is after the big climb, but before the Kensington Connector. It's pretty fast, so if it leans any further, it's going to take someone's head off.

Yes,that! especially the big one.


Keep in mind your bridge/ground ladder May be used by horses. 2x4 and deck plank construction may not be sufficient for that kind load, depending on design.

Also there are two trees down requiring chainsaw on the L3 shortcut to L2. The shortcut is located after the hand water pump then go right at the T-intersection.

Bill, I will get to the Loop 4 leaner today around 2-3pm today.

Will take a look at the L2-L3 shortcut one.
I only have a hand saw so will do what I can there.

It is part of the horse trail. I have not stopped to study if there is drainage or if it is just low,
but I was thinking more of a PVC pipe under aggregate type of solution.
