Totally packed, doable on a regular mountain bike, as in ancient times. Couple of trees down, but you can hop off and walk around/over.

The windstorm knocked multiple trees down onto to the trail near Peninsula. Anybody got a chainsaw?

 After climbing back up to the suspension bridge, the trail is fast and flowy all the way to the crossing at the Spray Lakes Rd.
