Second tree down is before the 5.5 mile marker on B, will require a chainsaw. I had to dismount and climb over this one.
Third larger tree is down somewhere on B, but conveniently it split across the trail so it's not really an issue.
a few small puddles at the beginning of A, otherwise trail was in great shape. Don't stop moving or you'll get eaten alive by flies.
also, only at Highland are there these little pod-shaped bur things that stick to me like velcro, anyone know what plant they're from?

The first is just before the 4 mile marker and the second is a little after the 5 mile marker. Both I think are chainsaw worthy. I didn't ride D so can't speak to that. The trail otherwise is nice but starting to get a little loose and gravelly. I had a few little slips that I wasn't expecting. Could use a light rain to firm things up a bit. Was a fun ride though. Glad the cooler weather is coming back, drank my camelback dry today.
