Tree down just after the clear cut. Not too big but I couldn't move it myself.

reporter Reminder folks! We’re asking everyone to stay off of Galbraith today. Spraying is occurring this AM on many of the roads.

Some of the clearcut section still needs some work, but the trail is fully rideable

 Fantastic trail made possible by the lack of regular maintenance, probably my favorite trail at Galby. Great if you're looking for a more raw and natural trail experience. Feels like a DH track. Just be careful of wet roots, they'll catch ya on this trail when you least expect it.
