Rode this 6/2/24. Trail is a bit overgrown with a bit of white thorn to the west end, and occasional manzanita or pin oak along the way. But generally not an issue. There are a few downed trees. Some have been partially cut out. Again, not a big issue and many could be cut out with a hand saw. There is one section toward the east end that has eroded into a trench due to water flow and not really rideable, maybe 100 yards long. I didn't regret riding it but could be in better shape with a bit of work. Most of the tread is good. Did not see any poodle dog bush.

Terrible, terrible things have been done to this trail. Aside from the storm damage, there are now several 1m-tall 'moguls' (huge piles of dirt) installed in weird locations. A key switchback was made smaller by piling rocks on the outside edge. Now I'm sad...
