      Trees down just after the trail goes into the trees. Not rideable and you must bushwack a bit to get by them. Clear after that.

      In great shape except a tree has fallen across the trail just before the turn to the climb out. It will need a chainsaw.

      Zest is in fantastic shape (one puddle near the top) - firm dirt and fast! Watch the video uploaded today to see the whole trail.
