Access route blown through trail in 3 places. No construction activity, so I just pushed around the first dirt mound. It was possible to ride across the access road in the 2 other places and locate the trail. Trail should be avoided if there is any evidence of construction in the area

Couple of overhanging Mesquite branches to keep an eye out for. Other than that, it’s in pretty decent shape!
