Man if this is what climate change is all about sign me up, 54 degrees on Dec 17th.
Declue deadfall removed.
Any deadfall or ride arounds on Dogwood have been cleared and or closed. South of the Hencken Rd shelter was a ride around the giant root and rock cluster, I cleaned the area up and left both routes open. Even with my superior John Tomac skills I would think twice about riding the roots.
Sorry dirt jumper dudes but the log ride over at the bottom of the Dogwood (CW) downhill from the Round House is cleared and the old trail restored. One safety note, The creek crossing after the log ride over is pretty vertical on the far side, If self preservation is a goal of yours I would slow your roll.
Other than that everything in the park looks to be kosher including the prescribed burn area that was still smoldering on Saturday.
