    Got some time in out here yesterday. First time in a year I was able to ride Back Blue without having to portage around a tree, so thanks for taking care of things there. I did find a good sized tree down towards the end of White Pine nearest Storm Track as well as a good sized tree across the Expressway just uphill from the low spot before Big Tree.

    I cleared at least a weeks worth of spider webs and several small trees from Haney Branch. The whole White trail could use a little love. Anyone want to meet up with some weed eaters and pruners to brush it back a little?

    I try to take some snips and get the face slappers when I can. I know there is a ban of the use of motorized equipment by non-park employees (see earlier in this thread) probably focused on the use of chainsaws but string trimmers may be included in it.

    Small tree down laying knee high halfway thru Goat Path near the switchback where the big tree was uprooted a few year back. A tree top down at the top of the last steep climb on North Slope. There is still a large tree laying across the Moguls and another one near the end of the Yellow race loop before the two big dips as you head down to the creek.

    Did a short ride and found some more downed trees on Yellow (in addition to the ones I listed above). Ankle-high tree at shortcut to North Slope from Yellow (shortly after exit of Goat Path). Knee-high tree shortly before Flume Zoom and head-high tree toward end of Flume Zoom
