Ok....who triked their fat bike? Na but for real, 4wheeler tracks through the place. Defiantly seemed like they knew what they were doing, skipped the tight sections and rough down hills. Hopefully it was someone that is supposed to be out there. The track's in the snow showed very little correction or damage to the actual trail.

Hey folks, what's up with all of the clear cutting? Looks like somebody is making a ski jump, or a highway. Areas I noticed were near the trailhead & top of lookout.

They cleared the top of the last big hill before Crooked Lk. camp ground rd and pretty much restored the view at the bench .
You could also , if we get enough snow , perhaps xc ski those cleared power lines.

So I know it is undoubtably very soggy up there but.., has all of the snow melted? With below freezing temps forecast every day, any chance the trail may become rideable later this week?

as of now it's a real soggy 3inches of snow. I bet in 24 hrs it's going to be a real crunchy ice.

Yep, crunchy only if you got out of the pot marked "line", more than a little BUMPY if you stayed in the line. Lots of power line clearing all around the full loop. I was able to make it through the carnage. One tree across the trail near the last "big" climb after Patterson Lk Rd. Crazy slick bridge, the last one, after the long one, near Hiland Lk. Still better than being on a trainer, but getting close.
