      Corona time is an entirely seperate trail. Please consult TrailForks to see this.

      Now the lowest segment has a section called Corona Time. Not sure if this is what was Dee drop or not.

      Lower Dee Drop has been cleared.
      However drainage ditch has now been re cut on exit on to the riverside fire road.

      Lower dee drop is trashed with fallen trees and logging operations. Trail is no longer ridable on the lower third of the lower see drop.
