12-18" diameter across a few of the poo rails. Will require chain saw or Godzilla to remove.

Thanks for the info. I will try and get to it next week sometime.
For now please use the by-pass. Will take a look at it this weekend. After cutting back the fields and such. I think I'm going to finally ride for a change. Lots of trees down over the past 2 weeks!

I rode the entire length of the Farmbrook side of BYT today.  The tree down on the poo tracks fell over two of the rail bridges.  Easily climbable but definitely not rideable.  There is another tree down on the section near the new tree skinny with the jump at the end on the way back to the entrance near the end of the trail.  Its not completely down but you have to duck under it and it will surely fall across the trail soon enough.  Trail was a little wet this morning and the roots were slippery in places and there were still some puddles and snotty sections.  The advanced section across the service road is way nicer now that we cut back the overgrowth last weekend.  Trail should be near perfect later on this weekend if the rain stays away.

Going riding early in the morning before the heat sets in. Going to try and cut the trees out after. Just depends. 2 more also down on the MD side also.

Poo tails are now cleared. 

Also a widow-maker to be with heavy thick vines on the way out just before the short black diamond loop up & over a rock before crossing a bridge. Was a good bit before the long skinny w jump. Did not see any other low hanger. 

Trail is very sloppy w many wet puddles after dump this morning.
