Obstacle #1

Not far from the west-side trail head in the field. I was able to clear one of these but the other knocked me down - haha But it can be walked over.

#2 along the west-side trail

This one is one the ground and snow-covered. I broke off a piece trying to lift it.

#3 a little ways along the west-side trail.

This is passable, but maybe you should cut it

PictographPhoto Altitude 228 ft
Photo of#4 about 1/2 way out the west-side trail

#4 about 1/2 way out the west-side trail

This can be bent to get by but would be easy to cut with hand saw

#5 - at the north-west corner

Big tree across the back line by the beer can. It broke off and feel from the stump in the foreground. It's on the ground and can be stepped over.

#6 - not far from the beer-can

Another big tree across the back line about thigh high off the ground. It can be straddled over but might be quite a high step for many.

Marker left at the crossing of the main, central trail and the back-line trail. Not an obstacle

#7 on the east side trail near the back line.

Three tree trunks about 4" diameter blocking the trail. Can be stepped over and under.

PictographPhoto Altitude 153 ft

#8 east side trail not far from the back line

Larger trees on the ground can be stepping over

#9 along east side trail

Another big tree shin high across the east trail. If the braches are cust off it wouldn't be too bad to step over

PictographPhoto Altitude 150 ft

#10 a little further on the east side trail

Yet another large tree on the ground to step over.

#11 about half way along the east side trail

This one is mostly off to the but might want to at least clear the branches from it.

Photo of#12 still more on the east-side trail

#12 still more on the east-side trail

Mainly an eye-sore. Can scoot around the end of this one.

Photo of#13 a real mess on the east side trail

#13 a real mess on the east side trail

This one is a mess of branches and the trunk in the middle of the trail.

Photo of#14 - the last obstacle on the east side trail

#14 - the last obstacle on the east side trail

Yet another big one about knee high possibly 8in in diameter. The limbs, at least, should be taken off to make it easier to straddle over. I suppose this could be considered the 1st obstacle on the east side trail depending on which end of the trail you start at.
