We rode on sunday the 15th.

East ridge:
Ten trees down, big ones. these are positioned in a manner that will require someone with actual bucking experience an a Stihl 660 to match. We scampered right over them. One or two pulled some of the trail tread up but not bad.

North ridge:
Ten or twelve trees down on the upper mile, these can be cut out by any yahoo with a saw however there is a jackpot that may prove interesting. After you pass the tie trail cutoff its smooth sailing. Somewhat brushy.

Tie trail:
Did not ride but it is safe to assume that there is at least one tree down.

now get back to work darren

Someone's cut several of the trees off east ridge but left the big ones.




They left this one half done, it's still blocking the trail


The big one (About 48 inches or so)

Most of the trees are all about 20-25 inches in diameter.

First one, small..


Second one, a bit bigger, about 20 inches or so



#3, about 25 inches or so, hanging about 30 feet out over a hillside so there's gonna be some big movement when it's cut. (note the snow still under it)



#4 right next to #3, about the same size but 4' off the ground.


#5, smaller (12" or so)



#6 another 20"er


#7 right behind #6

There's exactly one tree about 100 yard from the intersection with North Ridge.

Jeez Brandon, are you living on Mary's now?:)
No, but I have spent about 12 hours running the chainsaw up there so far this year. It was a fraking mess and there's still trees left. The FS is sending in fire crews to work on the trails at the end of June or early July to clear the ones that are left. There's still a couple trees below the tie on North Ridge but I probably won't be removing them unless the fire crews leave them.
