Severely overgrown, lots of vegetation encroaching on the trail. The trail looks fun, but is currently unrideable

 Not sure who thinks this trail is called "Bloody...". For the past 20+ years it has been called River Trail Part 2, or just Part 2. In any case its one of the best trails in the area, but is currently in need of repairs from recent storm damage and of course the poison ivy is terrible.

 This looks like a great trail in early summer or maybe later in the fall. It was completely overgrown in mid July. Several sections had knotweed completely covering the trail. Made for some pretty unpleasant riding - and dangerous blind bridges. Some of the bridges were extra tricky too.

 Wild parsnips have crowded out the trail near the 302 access point. Beware this plant is very poisonous.
