      A bit overgrown for a short section in the clearing, about a hundred meters before crossing the 142M257

      No trees down, thanks! Dry but totally manageable.

      Many trees down. If you ride, go slow and be prepared to stop suddenly. Cleared what we could.

      Tree down right before sharp left hand berm in lower uter - before bridge- stepup- gap jump. Exciting to stop before hitting it. 10” diameter:...

       Motos tracks on the top section of this trail, where the descent begins to the first fire road crossing. They really tear up the precious loam. Frig off dirt bikes.

       A great descent. Enough roots and bumps to keep it interesting but few challenges, just a really pleasant ride. Lovely descent went combined with Sexy Flanders, max Power and Hutz.

       Lots of trees down on the trail that we couldn’t move on the 3rd section. Orange tape for the falling boundary.
