      Several trees down across the lower section after Buckhorn intersection. Top bit was in relatively good shape.

      Downed tree on the first small DH section. Comes up quick so be careful!

      Middle is in good condition, no major downed trees or other hazards. Mostly dry except for a few spots that tend to hold water. Lower is hit or mess, but very slippery in some sections and probably best avoided with the freeze/thaw going on. Take Thrift instead.
