The mosquitoes have been notified of the tree down at 14, and they are waiting there to assist you when you arrive.

Wear bug spray. Or plan on not stopping. Or going slow.

Turtle trail.......doesn't surprise me that there are mutiple trees down there. It seems to be rarely ridden and doesn't get much attention. The West loop is getting pretty dry and hard. Makes for some sketchy high speed cornering when pushed hard, but fun! Low hanging head hunter on the North downhill run after the bench/lake overlook. Could be a problem depending how tall you are........I'm short so just blow right under it :) Thorny plants/branches are starting to grow out into the trails throughout. Won'r be long untill a trimming day will be needed.

We had a Cub Scout pack meeting there today for a bike and hike. The hikers did the turtle trail while I took the riders on the north loop. Introduced a large group to what Holdridge has to offer.

Seat post clamp bolt broke at the TH yesterday, so had to run the Grinder instead of ride it. Many face-slappers at rider-level were eliminated.

North loop is greasy, but firm.
West loop is greasy and wet, a few trees down but nothing you can not ride over or around.
tech was all clear.
Lake loop was all clear.

I rode Gruber's (all 15.5) over the weekend before the storms. There was a tree (about 8") down across the trail around mile 14, just after the orchards trail rejoins. A handsaw should work nicely.

What time and day did you ride the east. I rode it Sunday after noon and some stupid idiot had gone out and took the rocks and cut roots out of the trail. Also took it upon them selves to do rerouts on the corners. Why does no one ever see anything. Who ever did this had to have tools and been there all day. I hope and pray I catch them one day!!!

I'm sure there is more than one and they had to be out there for at least 5 or 6 hours. They could have invested time in trimming face slappers but that didn't fit their agenda.
