Tree down report - A couple of people reported trees down on Motown. A large tree fell knocking down about three others. Everything has been cleared except for the main trunk that is hanging across the trail. This requires a dismount. This trunk is about 13 inches in diameter and kind of rotten. Chainsaw will be needed. This is located near the Don Mills start of Motown not far from the Elephants Parking lot. Tree is located on the trail west of the highway underpass where it crosses the creek.

It's dried out pretty nicely, aside from a couple small mud puddles. The trail is pretty rutted though.
