A couple trees down. One about .3 miles in, another a bit before the first road crossing. And some scary low hanging snags here and there...

Chainsaw or hand saw?

They're both probably 10-12" in diameter so if it were me, I'd say chainsaw but if you're particularly manly, or just want a work out, go hand saw :D

Just rode tonight. Is it me or are the "tee pee" trees closer together? Tight fit there.

They did seem closer to me too... I didn't clip them but I was certainly more aware of them than I remembered being last year.

Funny because I remember thinking I took the tepee section much faster than normal, like there was MORE clearance. (I call that zone "The Merry Widows").

Enjoy

The trail looks great. Just a little damp in spots.

I also noticed on my first ride Saturday that the TeePee trees continue to get closer/lower. This section will challenge every rider when pushing hard. If you don't approach at the right angle and have too much speed your blasting your shoulder or worse yet head into those. This is another great feature that I look forward to every lap.

Trail is in great shape less lots of small twigs and sticks down everywhere. There is serious new leaner on the last downhill before the Winter loop split. Pay attention or it will clip your LEFT shoulder or head. Yellow trail marker at B loop split is gone/broken off at the ground. Go ride.

These are both gone. We didn't clean up any of the other leaners folks are commenting on, so continue to exercise reasonable care.

Rode yesterday afternoon. Tree across trail from 8 mile trail head. I think after second climb on the winding down hill in the left hand turn. Have to dismount and walk over.

These were removed last night.

Still in great shape today 4/23. Looks like someone is creating a reroute around the teepee.
