Clear to the Elfin Hut as of Oct 4. Trail mostly running fine, a few wet/muddy patches but otherwise good for now. Temps dropped rapidly late afternoon, numb fingers for the final descent.

This trail has been beat up fairly bad and needs work done asap. Brake bumps on every berm and sharp rocks all over. Nothing fun about this trail

Significant snow starting just before the first bridge. Clear before that. Tree down across the first bridge. Would avoid for another month.
