      reporter small tree down about halfway up the climb on the backside, hand-sawable with some effort.

       A trail for the diehards, not a whole lot of bang for your buck. Beautiful views from many angles, entry via Basalt Valley Spur is not an easy climb though. Access via Riverside Trail and LSD is easy enough though Riverside does have some short and sharp switchback sections that many riders will probably hike-a-bike up.
