      Numerous trees down. Freeze thaw in places. Unsafe to ride at speed due to above issues.

      Rocky side: Running water down some sections of trail due to pop up creeks, mainly on the rocky sections. Many sections are dry, mainly those exposed to sunlight, the wet sections were not muddy, but had a fair amount of running water down the trail. The bridge side is likely messy and best avoided, climbing from Lanning was not overly messy, wet, or soft, but the section below that going down typically gets muddy with significant rain. Some trees down, but mostly clear.
