Man made re-route of what was Spencer Branch trail. New route is awkward with multiple man made rock barriers. Use caution.

Mostly dry. Lots of leaves hiding the bulk of the trail, though. Love autumn riding!

The recent work on the rock gardens have improved the flow.

 Don't agree with this trail description, it's a fun trail that's not a creek gutter anymore.
