Due to a controlled burn that was conducted by DNR Death March should be considered closed through this weekend (ending Sunday Nov 19). During a night ride tonight we could still see sections of the hill across from Fishing Creek Road where there are fires burning. DNR is concerned that tress may still come down for the next couple days. Death March should be usable again starting on Monday Nov 20.

Leaves already starting to cover the trail, although I didn't have any traction issues today. There is a bunch of debris on the trail (limbs and branches) throughout. It didn't require getting off the bike, just big enough to avoid.
