The reason I ask is there is a dead-fall on the north part of the poto between the 2 clay / mud hills where the trail gets close to Kelly Rd. that sticks out pretty far. It looks like a beaver chewed the end of it to a point. Could it / should it be cut back a little?
When I remove deadfall I try to cut it fairly narrow to try and maintain the single-track nature of the trail. (it also makes it tougher for the occasional bandit ATV) If something is pointy or dangerous to trail users it should be cut back out of the way.
The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
