Multiple trees down, river crossings out, trail so grown over in spots you can't even see where you are going. Trail needs some serious work.

 Anyone know how much of spankies goes through the 160 acres that just sold beside the switchback?

 Cool, thanks for doing that. Looks to me like a trail could be put in just before the big hill down to the creek connecting over to silver star rd. And than maybe a climb back up to hammered cow/ my way or the highway to make a loop. Doesn't really look like a complete downhill trail is possible though.

 Just rode it July 2. About 10 trees down across trail and it is pretty washed away on the descent to the creek. Otherwise it is pretty much all rideable. A little overgrown in spots. Just needs a little lovin'.
