I rode CRPT Wednesday night at dusk/dark. Only a couple of greasy spots here and there, but other than that the trail is in great shape! Berms in the switch back section allow you to carry twice as much speed. Well done and thanks for all who participated in putting those in!

There are a couple trees across the trail:
- Very close to the main trail head that requires dismounting and lifting the bike over. It's above knee level; I dare you to try bunny hopping it!
- In the "pump" or "rhythm" section near the long bridge that can be carefully ridden around.
- Near the beginning of the section of trail that starts just across the river from Dodge Park. This one is just a trunk on the ground that is small enough to ride over with a bit of finessing, or you can bunny hop it. How about just piling some dirt on each side of it and turning it into a trail feature?
None of these trees seemed movable by hand without some sort of saw. A small chainsaw may be necessary.
