      4 large trees down (all in one spot) on west Starvation. Easy to pick your bike up and over them. Loose, janky, dusty, lots of debris, but fun.

      No trees on the west starvation. Didn't see east (which is old gold). Good amount of debris in the form of sticks and loose rocks in the trail...

      Trail is all clear of downed trees. East side is still a tough loose climb

      The west part of this trail is closed from the junction to the bottom. Big tree trunks across all over the place.
