I love this top section of Lame Horse (AKA Jurassic Park). Dodge the Aspens, wisp by the ferns. This trail recently got some work done, and is great, but still a bit overgrown

one or 2 down trees, not in fast or blind sections so no big deal

Someone moved the trees off, no new fallen trees to report. Motorbikes are making the trail slough and widen at a few points. Not a fan.

Rode 4 days ago and there were ~5 trees fallen across the trail.

 The top half of the trail is pretty easy going. The second half gets steeper, rockier, rootier, and trickier, as it's black diamond continuation must be as you keep going south. I didn't have a shuttle, so I had to ride back up. Pretty rigorous on the bottom half, the top half was much saner. Definitely intended as a downhill/shuttle ride but doable in both directions for the lone rider.
