The downed tree cluster at the bottom of the climb by Oakley Park rd is a cluster of sprung trees....proceed with caution there - the trees are sprung and still settling. Hope to get the new saw out there soon..whomvever gets to that one first needs a spotter.

Cool! Glad you're on the way back. I rode the Hick on a night ride a couple weeks ago and it was great. Maybe tonight before the Wings game.

one nasty low hanger aprox 200 yards from the finish. Right at a turn I didn't see it as I was looking down and it peeled me right out of the saddle. Tried to move it it as it is a broken limb but it is entwined in a large bunch of vines. No tools. Trail is in great shape!! Thank you to all who have helped!!

Straightened up a leaner @ mile 2, top of the hill after the river crossing. One more to keep an eye on is just after you cross the paved trail before the bleachers. It is pretty low and just above helmet height.

I found two before the bleachers...one smaller one on the ground so left it...other one tore out by hand. Didn't locate the one at 2 miles yet

There's a low one about 1/4 mile in. You can ride under it, barely.
