There is a "hike a bike through" tree down after the switchbacks, about a 1/4 mileish, it is right before the climb with the sharp right turn. With just about 3 miles left last night, the sky went dark, thunder started, lightening was crossing the sky, and I ALMOST made it. Got hammered by the rain in the last mile. I will 2nd the previous post, ton of rain dropped on the trail! I would say it dropped about 15 degrees in the last 2 miles of my ride, made for a interesting ride!
