Tree down at Renni

Rode there tonight.
Tree down in the Gulley Loop.
Actually, it is suspended about 5 or so feet off the ground.
Barely able to clear under it on the bike.

Also, if there was any trail in need of a leaf blower, it would be this one.
Can tell some sections have been hit, which are awesome, thank you.

Majority of trail is deep with leaves and is slick.


FYI

Thanks for the information on the tree.  I'll get the tree as soon as the rain let's up a little bit.  I saw it yesterday as I was clearing out the drains on the trail yesterday.

I have been clearing the drains but haven't cleared all the leaves completely.  I did that last year and notice that the trial became very sandy in spots.  THis year I had planned on only removing what leaves were necessary.  They are thick and I will clear some of those spots later this week.

Also not sure if anyone else saw it but last weekend there was a small tree down on the side of the trail. It was off the trail and not a problem but it did have a trail marker sign on it.

Suggest you tie a laptop bag or an IPod and headphones tightly to said tree.  It should "naturally" be removed
