I forgot to mention last Wednesday I saw albino turkey AND unicycle within yards of each other. What are the odds? What's next a unicorn?

Rode Sat afternoon....trail is in great shape and getting tighter with full growth encroaching on both sides. Thanks to those doing the trimming. No face slappers or anything major impeding a great pace.

There is a leaner on the fast downhill (parallel to the dirt access road) following the first road crossing before you get to the winter trail head.
It's not low enough to risk hitting your head and I suspect that it was leaning before and now is just leaning more - maybe since the wind we had earlier in the week. So no real direct interference with the trail but it's big and if it moved this week from wind, probably a matter of time before it moves more.

Other than that, trail is dry and dusty.

Actually it is getting pretty low now... if you are tall need to be careful as it is a the fast section.

First bit of trail could use raked. Sorry I ran out of time and couldn't finish picking up.

I might have a couple more hours next week- where else needs de-jungled?

Rode it today, everything was in good shape, just very dry and a little loose in parts. I light rain would help some I think.

Nice improvement at the bottom of the hill on the newer reroute. That area was getting pretty chewed up from all the "oh shat" braking.

Yeah, it's pretty loose. Tires were at my all time lowest pressure yesterday and still had the bike slide out from under me. Thanks for all the trimming! Still a few hidden slappers in section 3 to warrant a blast shield.
