      Didn't notice the down tree mentioned by the last report. Trail was clear and very muddy in spots.

      Tree down on upper section. A couple corners back from where you take a right turn to head towards the first drop. It's right around the corner...

       Awesome trail. My favorite on the mountain. Wish there was a faster way to loop it for multiple runs.

       I gotta agree with stapmike. I was really impressed with this trail. Great combo of air time, flow, tech, and the grade didnt end the trail too fast. Just awesome.
