      One large tree down at the bottom of hill 3/4 of the way up. Great view of the Granby Valley below. Was thinking of going over the top down Needles but the trail hasn’t been cleared this year and appears to have a lot of trees down.

      One medium tree down near the very bottom before you come back onto Saddle Lake Climb.
