      Clear of all deadfall. And the fireweed is amazing right now.

      ~6 trees down, all easy to get over/under

      Cleared 9 down trees, 4 remain (medium sized lodgepole), and more will likely fall this winter. The trail rides well as a climb or descent, but...

      About 10 blowdowns. Most easy to get over or around.

      All clear. Soft and loose though.
