      The trail is all clear. I cleared a few branches while riding so others won't get smacked in the face. Enjoy!

      Vegetation is overgrown some. Makes visibility challenging in some places and seeing the trail is more difficult at times but the trail itself is...

      Trail is in good shape. Logging impacted a section of trail and it was rerouted. These new rerouted are quite steep if headed south to north.

      Hero dirt! The trails wintered well. Only pine cones and debris in the trails. A little raking and it will be perfect. No trees down, either.
