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

Unbelievable conditions right now! The burn up top has unearthed some roots making the initial climb more difficult however the rest of the trail is better than I’ve ever ridden it. Go get it before the snow falls.

A few spots where the trail is washed out from fire damage. Beautiful trail still very rideable.
