Two fairly large trees have fallen across the trail. One is around marker .33 and the other is not far after (CW), near the south end of Sassy's...

On a curve before marker JFA 38 (in CCW direction) a tree fell away from the trail and took some of it with it. Still rideable but might throw you off

 I think this is a pretty good trail, just wish it was longer but it's nice that there aren't many intersections or a bunch of parallel trails. I prefer when I can ride it CCW - the DH near the end is pretty nice!
