    If you had not told me that was 5 deer, other than seeing the reservoir off in the distance, I would have never known it. Looks like an in-week ride is back on the menu!
    Thanks @scottay.

    Looks good, @scottay is the top cleared now also? Last time I rode a couple weeks ago it was the last section that needed work. I did some clipping but I know a group have gone up there with power tools. So that small amount of manual work I have done aza few times gets replaced in 10 minutes by gas powered tools
    Nice video

    Yeah, its rideable, not as cleared as the rest of it, and clippings on the trail here and there.
    We took the furthest old entrance, looks like there are two more entrances that may be better.
    And there are some other forks also. I'm sure they come back together eventually.
    Still a tree down that they stacked rocks on, and the one you can duck or go around.

    Yeah that downed tree definitely needs some better rock stacking. I think it is too off camber to ride. The top in the grassy area definitely needs a defined trail, there are too many off trails made by motors. I have ridden it enough lately that I know which one to choose. It's just cool that it is rideable now.

    They should leave an axe or saw by the downed trees, every one who goes by should take a couple hacks at it!

    I have left a bow saw and a set of loppers hanging from a tree. Just after the downed tree area. But, that would be a ton of work. Maybe I can find a cheap axe that I could leave up there for good. It is bound to happen again.

    So nobody is willing to carry something like this up there.

    I have one of those, it was my grand dads. I have a battery operated saws-all with an aggressive pruning blade.
