I'm guessing it's called log because there are a bunch of downed logs that you have to jump over. Would be a green if it weren't for said logs. See comments for my opinion on this trail.

Looking good. Honestly would be great with a few less logs but then they would have to change its name.

 Why would you leave all these log across the trail? I'm all for some extra gnar on an otherwise real easy trail, but many were too high to make without smashing your chain. When it turns from an obstacle to a potential bike breaker, it's time to cut it. I'd rather have an easier trail where I'm not smashing my chain every twenty feet.

 One of my favorite trails since recently discovering it. Some logs may be high enough to hit the chainring on the way over but it’s wood. So far no harm done.
An enjoyable technical challenge in my opinion.
