Copying a report posted in comments: "One section half way up the first big climb has maybe a dozen trees blown down across it as of sept 6 2021. Continuing on the Tumwater Mtn trail to make a counterclockwise loop there are dozens more. It is passable but not the stellar downhill it is when it has been maintained. Budget an extra 30-45 mins to scramble over them. Also there are a lot of small branches etc littering the trail. Be careful not to get one in your drivetrain. Or maybe wait til it’s cleared."

Also, Evergreen MTB will have a trail work crew up there in a couple of weeks, so hopefully the whole Goat Creek/Tumwater loop will be clear by mid-October. Then the snow and winter storms will come, but with this fall work these trails will have a better starting point for 2022.
