A couple of random trees down or blocking the trail, most you can go around (one snagged my derailleur ). Overall ideal conditions and a really fun ride. Trail had a little bit of everything!! I’d say this is a somewhat challenging blue, great trail to ride for people who are really confident on blues and want some low consequence challenges!
