I was talking to John? at the trail head last evening about the smell death out there, he informed me that it's from Stinkhorns, Google it.
It could be the same thing there smelling over at the Milford trail also.

Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.

Decent sized, somewhat rotted, double trunk tree down at about 14.8-14.0 miles on the D loop. Doesn't look like the D sees a lot of traffic. The old leaves and maybe some new leaves make it hard to see where the trail is going in some spots. Lots of fun though.

I had time to ride the whole thing today. When I ride Highland I feel like a kid going to Disneyland. What a great trail. I could be in a little better shape but at least I had enough to ride all 4. There were a few more log piles than I remember but otherwise the trail was the same as I remember. It's been a couple years.

I saw those rotted logs as well on Monday. They didn't seem like they fell there naturally.

I thought it was old or maybe intentional. I removed something like that once at a different trail and was accused of dumbing down the trail.
