To add to b b report, also two smaller trees on Appleton. Just too big for me to move myself. Both in second section before you get to campground. One is very small and could be handsawed ( just before you get to pavement). Other has reroute around it but makes for sharp corner at speed.

Tree on Appleton about 1.5 in. It's right alongside bishop lake road. Another one on the found loop, but it's hard to say exactly where. Chainsaw likely needed for both.

All trees have been removed by Carl as of 4pm today. Found loop, Appleton, and Torn have been cleared. Carl is a good man :-)

Trail was in pretty good shape today, a few soft spots, but otherwise all loops were good.

2 small trees down between the 4.5 and 4.67 posts just before the bridge back to parking lot at the end of lost loop. I tried to move them by hand but they were more than a one man job. Good news is its only about a 50 yard walk from the road.

Rode Brighton trails this afternoon. Cleared trees mentioned above. Trail was in pretty good shape. Usual soft spots. Other than that all loops were great.

Is there snow/ice on the trail? Or is it all clear?

There was some snow powder yesterday. Pretty sure today will be more. But no ice. I was on my fatbike, but saw some skinny tire tracks too.

Trail in excellent condition. A little bit of snow but even the skinnies would do fine. No ice and the ground is nice and solid.

Torn shirt is great - no studs required.

Murray and Appleton, not so much. Very very icy.
