On the Crooked Lake trail, there are 2 trees down next to each other at the stone fireplace; likely will need a chainsaw.

You can avoid most of the mud holes that I referenced by staying completely within the already defined edges of the trail. I would rather ride around the edge of a mud hole than cut a giant swale through it with my tire, requiring maintenance to repair. Now, if there was a long continuous section of mud then of course I would dismount and walk my bike, or if the trail was narrow, I would not ride through vegetation to avoid it. However there was nothing even close to that yesterday. Just a very light surface mud due to thawing FROST and decomposing leaves, not from recent RAIN. About 50% of the trail was completely dry, anyway. I did not spin out on hills or lock up on braking... trail was solid.
