There is also a tree down right before the tech section entrance, or atleast there was on saturday morning. Also the muddy section after the 2 trees was super sloppy and required a dismount on saturday. other than that everything was pretty ridable

Looks like the park closed the angled bridge after the climb up from the sledding hill area. It took me by surprise as they've actually put up what looks to be permanent posts with signs on them blocking off the trail before and after that small bridge. They cut a new wide swath work around and dropped a bunch of wood chips.
Trail is in great condition! Not sure how it is today. A few key notes: - The angled bridge is closed. A new bridge is built about 50 meters up the trail. Trail markings make it obvious. Not sure why the park service closed the bridge. - Tree is down near the technical section entrance. Someone built a makeshift log pile on the down tree. It is actually fun but it sounds like TC will remove it. - Tree is down on the wide grass trail section (the portion where you can see the parking lot and the playgrounds on your left). - Large mud pit on the second to last turn during the steep downhill section (the one with the ginormous banks). That mud pit has been there forever.

I saw this after my ride last night. Bloomer still has some greasy spots from the rain earlier in the week. I completely avoided the area by the sledding hill assuming that it's still mush. The one turn at the big rock in the "toilet bowl" big switchbacks is still wet and slippery. Came across 3 hikers, beyond that I felt like I had the trial to myself for 1.5 hours.
Rode the trail today, few wet spots as usual. There is a bundle of ash trees down 50 ft before you exit the tree line at the parking lot and turn right towards the start kiosk. At least one is chainsaw worthy.
