Cleared some deadfall and broken glass. Trail is in good shape. A few sand traps that the hard rain washed to the bottoms of the climbs. Keeps you on your toes.

Tree down just past the dirt jump/ditch/area that was bandit trailed to the left, but the real direction is right. Will require a chain saw or dedicated hand saw.

Two pretty big trees down - after center area where the trails converge. May be the trees the previous guys were talking about. Thanks again for those helping with the trails. 8)

I noticed a lot more dirt on the 2nd log pile on a ride today. Nice! Looks good and rides nicely! Downside: (not related to logpile) a couple down trees causing significant walk around. I removed/moved ONE but the other was much larger, requiring more time and effort than I was able to provide today. If not attended to in the next day or two I am more than happy to do a group trail cleanup day if needed. I'll be out of town next weekend but open now till Thursday for any needed labor time.

Me and my dog removed the tree after the red house just before spin cycle and the cluster that fell just before the newly reworked log pile.

How's the trail since the rain? Doable or too wet?
