r21954 and I cleared about the first 1 1/2 miles of West. Took almost 4 hours. It seemed like there was something across the trail every 50-100 feet. There is still plenty to do - there's a BIG mess at the bridge near the base of the Wall.
The soil is 50/50 - some areas are too wet & soft to ride, other places are okay. Basically not ready for primetime, but if you still plan on riding, bring your cyclocross bike, cuz there's soo much deadfall you'll be carrying your bike more than riding it.
Holdridge could really use a good turnout for Trail Day this Saturday. If nothing else, come for the chili!
