Hit Poto yesterday. The usual puddles in the 1st 4-5 miles, but otherwise it's in decent shape and should be very good today. We avoided the Gosling loop. There are 3 trees down, 2 within the first 3 miles, the other I can't recall (sorry!) you will be able to see them in advance so no danger of them sneaking up on you. They will all require chainsaws. Moved some smaller ones off the path. Skeeters are in FULL FORCE! Deet is a necessity for most folks.

One of the trees in was ~1.75 miles in from the Silver Lake trailhead IIRC...

Awesome trail conditions this morning. Complete loop & not a single other cyclist. No bug problems. Thanks to all who are doing the work, esp. the weed wacking.

Poto Storm Report..... trees down
This is second hand info from a buddy who was out tonight.

#1 between flat rock hill and the next bench at the top of the hill
#2 top of the drop going down to dead lake
#3 top of the hill before the waterloo split
#4 near the woodsman's house after the second Patterson lake Rd crossing
#5 between highland lake access road / shortcut merge, and the first high bridge over the channel
The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
