I agree with the others - major erosion issues on this trail, but also had good stretches of long, flowing downhill. Don't recall a large tree being down, but tons of leaves on the trail this time of year made it even more difficult to judge, as you were never sure how deep you would sink, especially in the waist-deep eroded sections. In several places, it was the wiser choice to walk.

Mostly dry. Lots of leaves hiding the bulk of the trail, though. Love autumn riding!
