      New large trees down on second section, just after the new connector trail below the stone circle.

      Yeah couple trees at the top like stated already. Last 1/3 of the TOP section is a small river. Needs a few days of sun to dry out but she's ripable. Spicy, but ripable!

      Two trees down at the top of Eli. I didn’t ride the upper section so I don’t know if there’s more. I did ride the lower sections and all the rest are clear.

      Great blue tech trail with some cool little chutes and rock rolls. Also has some fun wood features. Great bang for your buck.
