Logging guys weren't letting people up the access road today, they guessed no access for another four days or so.

1-2 cm of snow on most of the trail, but still 99% rideable. Large tree across the trail, perhaps 3/4 of the way from Beaver Pass to WMSM.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail. Chainsaw needed! It's on the very first bridge from the start of the trail. There's also 2 trees down on the Access Road through Emerald Forest (the one that starts at the gravel pit and takes you to the start of RRTI). They are both located at the forest's edge where the large clearing is, one on each side.

Cleared fallen trees at start so trail is actually passable. Lots of deadfall (leaves, branches etc.) so easy to lose direction. Someone with a big handsaw or small chainsaw will need to come and cut the rest up.
