the above mentioned tree has been removed.
Also got more trimming done today, the lung buster, and the section after post 13.

puddles and greasy corners (as seen by the few sets of tracks sliding) was what I saw on foot today.

Rode this morning and the trail was in good shape, just a few small puddles in the normal spots. It is starting to get a little bushy in the trail after the stair climb. Shortly after the bottom of the climb I must have brushed against some type of plant that caused my left forearm and leg to feel like they were on fire and itching. The feeling lasted for about 20 minutes and then subsided. Fortunately no welts or rash appeared.

Planning to check the trail monday, then plan out the next work.

That is what I thought as well, but at least it didn't leave any marks.

BTW, I think that was my first ride there this year. It seems like the roots have gotten bigger :D It makes parts of the trail quite a bit more challenging. Please don't cover them over.

got out for a look today.

few leaners (section after the upper ridge, on the RR grade, and a tree laying on the replaced bridge near post 7), and one tree across the 2-track at post 17. the trail trimming s holding up in most places, but a few dang vines are starting to creep closer to the trail in a few spots.
Will try to get the trees out on tuesday.

Steve I think the trail that was bushy and got you was the off-park stuff west of the park there.

Yes, you are right. I am used to turning left at the bottom of the stair descent. Looking at the map I see that the official trail no longer uses that section.
