      Tree fallen from left almost across whole trail on first turn, stay far right to hop or go around. Tall grass but trail visible.

       this trail can be started at the top of the hill to get more speed, from the wooden structure. Pass the entry (I missed it) heading into the parking lot, you'll see an old 2 track road to the right, when you reach the top the wood structure is in front, start heading down trail to right.
      Should trail be edited to have start at top?
