Hero mud! Trail was wet and slippery. Use caution on the downhills. Pack dry clothes to drive home in.

Large tree down across trail (8" diameter), blocking trail right before the intersection of Lost Valley when headed down the hill towards Fall...

Some mud in areas w/o tree cover; some frozen mud. There is a tree down at a 45 degree angle to the trail but can be easily ridden around.

Lots of mud puddles to play in! Slick on a lot of the trail, but totally rideable.

 Great trail however I went the wrong way ... next time I'll be riding INTO the Fall Creek parking area, looks like so much fun going down!
