That makes some sense. Hopefully the dirt settles in the rocks.

This sort of thing seems to be periodically done at both Stony and Addison. It looks weird for a while, but in a few weeks the rocks look pretty much normal but are a bit more solidly in place.

Lots of deadfall out there. I moved anything that wasn't rideable. There is also a low tree just before the 4.5 mile mark. It was rideable as of ~2PM. The park has been notified.

Watch out for the kamikaze chipmunks!

Trail was surprisingly dry after all the rain. However, some of the new dirt on the trail was a bit ...soft. This will likely sort itself out soon, but be aware.

The low tree by the 4.5 mile mark is still there, and still rideable.

Did not ride this trail for a while until today. Excellent shape, best I ever seen. Could not get enough of it, had to stop at the end of my 3rd loop due to a flat ....Seen some complaints on dirt in some of the rock garden. I believe that's what keeps it all together. Went back to this trail being tired of hunters in other places

Exponentially greater number of leaves have fallen in the past week. Fortunately, Pauly is working on clearing them up as much as possible before the Massive Fallout. Should be in great shape by Saturday. :D

Trail was great post-Fallout. Only 1 Clif bar wrapper was noticed. Oh, and a dead chipmunk. :P

Beautiful early evening ride tonight.

12 deer sightings (may have been the same group of 4 for all I know), a multitude of kamikaze chipmunks, 1 grumpy raccoon refusing to move from the middle of the trail, only one other biker........and Pauly with the largest leaf blower I've ever seen on his back.

The wind brought down a crapload of deadfall and leaves. Most was rideable or moved. However, there were a few trees down which I couldn't handle. One on the initial hill covers about 75% of the trail; one on the 2-track along Lk. George (same situation); one immediately after the 5.5 mile mark which crosses the trail and is too big for a mere mortal like myself to ride. The last is right at the very end of the singletrack. It's pretty small, but it was still attached.

This was all as of 6PM Wednesday. Who knows what fell after that. :P

The park will be informed of these in the morning.

The tree at mile 5.5 is still there. Other than that the trail is Viagra OD firm, baby's butt smooth, and diarrhea fast.

Trail is all clear of trees. Parts are also clear of leaves; other parts inundated. Trail is in prime shape. :icon_thumleft:

There are some deer population management hunts scheduled for November and December. There is a sign posted with the dates near the entrance, the first of which is 11/16. Please take notice and avoid riding during these dates. I will try to post up a more comprehensive list soon.
