Two trees down next to each other, a good handsaw or a chainsaw needed, on the Goslin Loop just after the rooted downhill near Kelly Road, in front of the first of the double bridges, no way around. The rest of the trail was good to go, no deer flies yet. Silver Lake was warm enough for a dip.

Does anyone know if the above-mentioned trees are still on the trail ?

I rode the Potawatomi trail yesterday. If the Goslin loop is included in the 17.5 mile Poto loop then it has been removed.

Yes, Gosling Loop is included in the total trail mileage. I also rode Poto yesterday and did not see any downed trees on the Gosling Loop.

Tree down in the Hankard Hills section, right before the inconsequential climb to the bench.

Trail was in great condition today, of course the trail could use some rain, the sand washes were a challenge, no trees down, not many weeds, or face slappers, no flies, great day for a ride.

Trail needs rain bad, Blind Lake Bassterd climb was just that, my tires sank up to the rims just after the first log crossing, other then that the trail was pretty good, no flies bit me, great day for a ride, nice temps, no bugs, the water in Silver lake was warmer then the air..
