There is a leaner in the first section. It's blocking the trail between the short switchback and the hairpin turn. It's not big but with branches ranging from 1" - 4" in diameter.

Hey all,

Yup, the leaner isn't moveable - I tried.

Rode RHP last night and things are looking pretty good right now. The last (and new) loop was a little muddy in spots, but otherwise, a good ride. Some vegetation is starting to grow over in a few areas. Thanks to all - loving the trail at RHP!

Is that leaner small enough to remove with a handsaw?

I'd say so. But I've never taken care of any fallen trees, so it's hard for me to be sure. There are multiple branches need to be cut. They are about 1-4" in diameter. It's after the first short switchback. So, it's easy to access from the paved road from the main entrance.

I removed the trees this morning. Got them with the hand saw. The trail is in good shape up to the Munger area where I had to bail, but the face slappers are starting to come out in a few places. Take some pruners with you if you head out there! Oh and maybe a saw too, there were a few larger helmet tappers too...

Thank you so much! I will again enjoy the hairpin turn!

RHP was a thrill to ride this evening. The north loop is getting better! Will need a trail day soon since many of the open sections are growing over. Hopefully I can help out this year.
