Rode today around 6:00 pm and there are some greasy corners and maybe 1 or 2 spots of standing water, but all have dry areas next to them that can be ridden without widening the trail. Oh, and there's a leaner about a mile in that is at the top of a climb that might hit your camelbak. Not a big deal, but will require a saw.

Fine shape as of 5pm Sunday. Still a couple puddles not worth mentioning and no grease.

Trail looks great. Probably going to be in a rough shape after this weather rolls through.
I use platform pedals because I have a tendency of going over the handlebars.

Just rode this morning. There's two trees down on the first section, both of which need a power saw. The first is probably a half mile from the first road crossing. The second is only a few hundred feet from the first crossing. Had to go around the first and pick up and climb over the second. A few low hangers throughout the trail so keep your head up. Other than that, the trail is sticky and feels great today.

I did a lap around 5:00 with a handsaw in the backpack. More than just a few low hangers, I probably took out about a dozen good size headslappers/facemaulers. Wrecked my Strava time so I had to do a second lap cuz trail is in fine shape now (cept for the two trees that are still there. I'm not a certifiable chainsaw guy yet)

Ranger Sarah and her accomplice were taking care of the trees at about 7pm tonight. I expect they will both be gone by tomorrow. Big Thanks to park staff.

Trail was great this morning. Track felt tacky. Thank you to whomever was out there moving branches this morning.

A little muddy this morning when I made a lap, but nothing worth noting. Track was in great shape.
