      All clear of downed trees, very minor brush overgrowth here and there. Looks like 44 Trails has been doing a great job clearing trails here.

      Several trees down, needs brush clearing in spots, otherwise good to ride

      A few trees down across trail, blocking trail. Easy to get around though. A few patches of snow, but rideable.

       Pretty nice trail! Allows a loop with forest creek trail. No down trees, but a short section of hike a bike on a steep slope near the top. Lovely woods, no people

       Good cross country trail, and loop with the Forest Creek trail. Maybe I didn't have may head on the swivel, but I didn't see views of Mt. Hood. No worries though. Great ride for solitude. No people when we rode.
