The newest fallen tree on the Red trail has been cut away, right next to the other really big fallen tree that was cut away a while ago. The most recent fallen smaller one near the end of the Orange trail is still there.

There is tree trimming work going on today so you can't get across the wood foot bridge next to the Orange trail but you can go around and get to the Red trail. The small fallen tree near the big fallen tree that's being cut up is gone.

There is a tree down across the trail and a vine hanging across it at the beginning of the Red trail. It is just after you get on the trail and just before the first wood bridge. It is laying about two feet above the trail.

I'm not sure if the tree listed above was cleared already, but if it was there's another one in about that same spot. It's on the ground now and but there's no vine.

Both trails could also use a mowing at their entrances/exits, but once you get under the tree cover it opens up quite nicely.

It looks like there have been a few recent falls, nice work to whoever is getting them cleared/rerouted! Very nice signs out there too!

Rode both Orange and Red yesterday evening. Orange was great. Red was a little overgrown and had a few small downed trees and a bit of debris on the trail.

There were dozens of trail runners on both loops. The trail is tight and twisty so it can be difficult to see oncoming runners. We just took it slow and everything was fine.

Small, but fun trail. These'd be really neat if they connected to a bigger MUP or something to make them more accessible. As they currently stand I suspect they mostly see trail runner use.

Very flat, but seemed to be reasonably well built. The first section had some jarring corners but was fun, The second had a fair bit of deadfall but rolled really well.

Best way to ride Munson is to do Sterling Beach on a fat bike, take the connector into town and ride along the river to Munson and back. You'll go past the Custer statue.
