Bottom half of the trail is pretty dry and dusty. The rerouted exit to eagle lake rd. is fast, loamy and fun! Nice work!

Running great. New exit is fun although I do miss that last drop to the road.

reporter Freshly raked... So good. Tree still down between steps of doom and damos drop, might be a bit big for a hand saw. Can ride over it or around it.
