 Downed tree and one heavily blown out/landslide of a corner. Aside from that, the entire loop is running perfectly. No snow in sight.

      Palisades is like no other ... this is one of the last real exposure spots on the trail headed down.

      Without a tree canopy to catch the rain the tread has washed away in many spots through the burn areas. I would not consider this a mtn bike trail anymore. It will take a lot of time and effort to make this trail fun again.

      Near the bottom of the lower switchbacks there are a couple trees down and a small easy to get over rockslide.
