Found the tree on Torn Shirt at the 3.75-4 mile mark- good job on the location on that one- taken care of.
I did not find the tree on Murray around the 8 mile mark. I did not have time to ride the whole loop, it was threatening rain. I rode from the 4 way intersection far east end by
Bishop Rd./ Bauer Rd. (about the 7.5 mile mark) back west to the end of the trail. Did not find any trees down. Was raining and getting dark by then, so I called it a day.
If that tree is still here, let me know- I might get out again tomorrow night. Better location?


I recorded the ride on Strava and will email you a screenshot showing where I think I walked around the tree.

Rode both Murray and Torn Shirt. Both trails are in great condition, with Torn Shirt having more leaf, pine needles and some dead fall on the ground. Beautiful time to ride.

Trail in very good condition for this time of year. Did a quick TS/ML loop yesterday afternoon and made it up every climb. They aren't as gravelly and loose as they often are this late in the season. Excellent re-routing continues on both loops and they only keep getting better.

Did come across an exciting spot on Torn Shirt. Riding downhill into a sharp, blind, slightly off camber right turn and YIKES! Big hole from a fallen tree's rootball. Reroute to the right of the small tree that wants to push you into the hole is already pretty well established. Quick celly pic:

Rode both TS and Murray. Torn Shirt was in good condition, Murray has 5 trees down. First is on the Lost loop between 4 and 4.5 mile markers. Two near the hill with the bench on top of it (one on the uphill, the other on the downhill). One is in the middle of he Murray fast section. And the last is somewhere on the last mile of Murray, before that small rock garden.

I cleared the two trees near the hill with the bench on top. I'll check out the other ones tomorrow.

All five trees are cleared (thanks for the perfect location report, saves me a lot of time looking).
