Trail Ridge
A little bit of tech, not bad a all, pretty flowy towards the bottom, just do not climb up the fire road at the bottom. It will not take you back to were you started.

There was a tree down on the trail in the lower 1/3 of Dirt Alpine. This is relatively new and no worries --- plenty of visibility as you're ascending and descending but requires dismounting.

There is a large tree down, but you can navigate around it. Otherwise good.
