       This trail started out great. Sailing through pastures about to burst with wildflowers. And it got even better when I hit the new berms that were put it followed by a nice Rollercoaster along the river. And then BAM! Nothing but downed trees. Huge evergreens. Totally uprooted. Had to hack my way out for almost 7km trying to keep going forward instead of doubling back. Must have been one hell of a wind storm. Did this ride Sunday June 18 2017. I would go back if it gets cleaned up.
