I blew right past the split that's hard to see going backwards but didn't have time for another full lap anyway. Lot's of deer but didn't see another rider.

The tree is down in a tricky spot, which could catch an unaware rider off guard. It is right after the long low log pile at around the 2 mile mark after the paved path crossing, on your way to the horse parking lot trail head. It is unincorporated into the log pile, and at the end of it which could cause someone to endo if they weren't paying attention.
