If that's the case, I guess MOT again...

Trail was ok except back nine. Didn't ride it. Pines ok, except I think 2 trees down at most three. That's all I could finish as I was feeling ill.
Consumer, you are lucky to have gotten out ok. I have never seen so much down. It looks as if a shower of trees and branches rained down all over. I remember the storm a few years back that Pete and his bro cleaned up and that was bad, but this is a whole different level.

On the + side, Mark and Pete cleaned up a lot!

Hope to make it if I'm feeling better.

Unless Monday's wind knocked more down, the Rollercoaster, Snakes, and Back Nine were all clear.
The park has been given maps of know issues and are planning to clean-up these areas.
Please let me know what still needs clearing as I hope to get back there Friday.

Just want to clarify the comments above... By clear, do you mean no debris, dry / rideable or both?

By "clear" I mean rideable. No need to dismount for fallen trees. Still plenty of debris out there.

I'm thinking we should give Stony a go this evening. If the trails end up being bad, we could just go ride the PCT instead. Thoughts?

Riding Stony tonight. Trails are fine, just a lot of downed trees.
