    Cuyamaca Loop - LOTS of trees down on Black Oak and final descent back down to West T

    Just a heads up - I think I had to scramble over about thirty trees on the way down Black Oak and the final descent after the Azelia Spring climb. The burnt trees look to not have faired well with all the rain.

    I'm all for natural technical features added in.

    Brushing up on your trials skills is an added bonus.

    Riders beware. Really!!!

    As the forest sheds the last of the burnt trees, keeps your eye WIDE OPEN when riding thru these parts during any windy conditions. Many more trees are teetering and appear to be ready to drop. I rode this section about 10 years ago and must have had 20+ "cyclo-cross" obstacles. Sure handicaps the strava score

    Man it just kills me every time I ride up there, remembering how beautifully forested it was before the big fire.
