One big tree across trail, but theres a path around it. Since its late in the season (Oct 29), this will probably get picked up in the spring cleanup.

Climb up is clear. The first downhill section on the other side had allot of snow, that side doesn’t get much sun

Oct 27, 2018 Goat Creek Trail Canmore to Banff: Parking lot temp 5 degrees with biting wind and flurries. First 1/3 of ride we encountered compact snow with a light dusting of new snow overnight that made the surface very grippy. Last 2/3 of the ride was a mix of clear sections and a few wet icy sections that were slippery and easy to go sideways on/crash on if one wasn't cautious. Looking far ahead / trail scanning was very important! All rideable if one rode conservatively in the trickier sections. We were riding on regular 27.5" bikes. Two trees across the trail that were easily walked around
