It looks like a landslide happened about halfway down the trail with quite a few large trees down across the trail. I didn’t go any farther than that point. The views at the beginning are beautiful! After that it’s mostly down a very steep hill down to the landslide and I think some trees got struck by lightning down there too. What’s past that I don’t know as I turned back rather than risk a twisted ankle because I was alone and had to make it back up the hill to my car. Also FYI, the trail is down a hard pack gravel road. It was dry though, so my Civic made it fine and someone else’s Prius as well.
