Low angle pinner, slightly cross-country and a fun change-up from the intense upper trails that funnel down here.

      Couple of trees down that would require a chain saw to remove. Other than that all good!

      Top bridge is submerged. Water is running quickly. It is still there but crossing it is dicey. Many large trees down, overgrowth makes route...
