One tree down between 1 and 2 kms up from the bottom of Ridgeback 2. Blocks the lane and is at the bottom of a bit of a corner, so if you are flying down there, pay attention. Mostly dry trail, some icy spots here and there, but in remarkably good condition for this time of year. Rode in the earlier part of the day and it was frozen. Probably more treacherous was Elbow Valley trail at the bottom.
